Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Chicago, Illinois (Twenty-First Street Crossing)
July 28, 1971

The inbound Texas Chief (by now operated by Amtrak) heads north to Chicago's Union Station, seen from Roosevelt Road looking south. The CB&Q commuter yards are at right; in the distance are the massive bascule bridges taking the Baltimore & Ohio and St. Charles Air Line across the Chicago River, as well as the Pennsylvania's vertical lift bridge over the Chicago River (South Branch).
