Grand Trunk Western
Blue Island, Illinois (Blue Island Crossing)
May 31, 1973

A closer look at Grand Trunk Western nos. 5805 and 4545 as they lead a southbound freight across Broadway Street through Blue Island Crossing. The presence of a brakeman on the front pilot who appears to be stepping down implies that this freight has local business to transact (perhaps picking up orders) before heading out of town on the GTW main.
