8/9/2010, Last day for Central Illinois Railroad Lumber District, think this is where they come off ramp to go north to BNSF or?

UP/Denver & Rio Grande has a famous hanging bridge. I think it is neat that BNSF/CB&Q has one in Chicago. During a field trip to Chicago, I made a point to get some photos of it. In addition to the one above, here are some others that I took on that trip.
In this overview, I made a a point to include the two water towers and smokestack that still stand on the east side of the tracks. In the background we see Willis/Sears Tower.
When I went from the east side to the west side along 21st Street, I noticed this view. I stopped to take it to get another view of the two water towers and smokestack as well as the hanging bridge support and the "L" going over railroads. If somebody ever builds on this property, this view won't be available.
All of the photos I took in this area are here.
