Elgin, Joliet & Eastern
Rondout, Illinois
June 4, 1973




At Rondout, well north of downtown Chicago, the Milwaukee Road's mainline was crossed by the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern. Just north of the crossing the abandoned grade of the Chicago, North Shore & Milwaukee ran overhead, providing an ideal vantage point for photography. Here an EJ&E freight has held up what appears to be a northbound Milwaukee Road local.
