On a cold February day in Chicago in 1990, the former Milwaukee Road Goose Island yard plays host to several boxcars in the Soo Line/CP Rail era. The second boxcar is still in Milwaukee Road colors and lettering, while a third boxcar is parked along the old Milwaukee Road freight house to the right
(south). At one time this yard was a very busy place, wtth transfer runs from Bensenville bringing in new cars and retrieving outbound ones here. In a few more years, even this scene will be gone.
