Chicago, Illinois (Ash Crossing)
July 27, 1971
There's no mistaking who this locomotive belongs to, as Soo Line SD no. 749 heads north through Chicago's Ash Crossing. This transfer run is probably on Baltimore & Ohio rails, with the Chicago River & Indiana and the Baltimore & Ohio-Santa Fe connection in the foreground. The Pennsylvania's tracks are on the other side of the C&RI.
