Album Info:I decided to stay local today at two hot spots that are within a half mile of each other. The 71st Street grade crossing on the IHB is about a half mile west of Harlem Ave and is adjacent to Toyota Park, home of the Chicago Fire MLS soccer team. On the other side of Harlem Ave is the west end of BRC's Clearing Yard and the Harlem Ave Wye that connects the IHB and BRC. Almost all the shots in this album come from these areas except a few from IHB's facility at Argo Corn Products and a quick run over to the other side of Clearing Yard on Cicero Ave. All pics in this album were taken between 1:30 and 5pm CST.
