I believe this picture is 14 years old. CN train is sitting facing northwest just in Forest Park Il. This is the Altenheim Sub on CSX. The minute it crosses Madison it will enter River Forest and leave the Altenheim for home rails. Formerly WC formerly SOO. The altenheim was originally built to give SOO and Chicago Great Western access into Union Station. Later it became SOO/WC's route into BRC's clearing yard. Several bridges east of BRC are out. It was regularly used as such through the 90s and into the 2000s until CN purchased the EJ&E. At that point most traffic died. CSX runs a local from BRC out to Forest Park and the Ferrara Pan Candy factory in Forest Park (Lemonheads). CN will run a train on the line every so often just to maintain it as an active line, but EJ&E is the better route. There's always talk of upgrading this for some sort of passenger service, but it would take a lot of work to upgrade things and the route in River Forest runs through a quiet (rich) residential neighborhood. It's been a lot of years since a train regularly ran. I grew up here and this was one of the first lines I railfaned.
