Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific
Chicago, Illinois (Mayfair Crossing)
May 30, 1973
A southbound Amtrak passenger train on Milwaukee Road rails is about to cross the Chicago & North Western at Mayfair Crossing, about six miles northeast of downtown Chicago. The Milwaukee Road's station is just a short distance behind the camera. At the far right is the North Western's freight line to Milwaukee which parallels the lakeside passenger line to the west, complete with signal bridge and the unique C&NW horizontal color-light signals.
