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

Yet another freight, apparently a northbound transfer run this time, is approaching Blue Island Crossing from the south and passing beneath the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific's overhead bridge. At the far left are the Indiana Harbor Belt and Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal tracks; the caboose at right is sitting on the connecting track to the Rock Island. The engine number on the lead appears to be no. 5803.
