These Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific units are awaiting their next assignment just south of the Rock Island's Blue Island, Illinois Vermont Street Station. The mainline to Joliet and points west is at left; the diesels are resting on the south end of the commuter line which joins the main just past the bridges over the Calumet Sag Channel. The bridge overhead is Western Avenue.
