See a boxcar go past the end of track…


Oops...this incoming boxcar loaded with cocoa beans has run out of rail at Blommer Chocolate Company on Chicago's Near North Side. It stands with wheels digging new flangeways directly into the asphalt pavement on Jefferson Street! Without any bumper at the end of this spur, this was bound to happen sooner or later.
