I have several pictures of the refinery in Romeoville because when I am in the area, I go on the high-bridge of 135th Street to check for action on the BNSF/Santa Fe, the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal and the coal pile of the power plant. This is the refinery that blew a tall (huge) pressure tower a few blocks away a few decades ago. I remember seeing a fire from several miles to the north.
