Other Information

Good photo times:  Anytime and just about anything can show up.

Broadway overpass gives a good view of the yard and engine facilities.  Also State St runs right along the edge of the right away.  We're talking about 4 feet from the edge of the road to the edge of the ties.  Many times trains will wait here before entering Madison Yard.

Just east of here along the UP (CNW) in what was a portion of CNW's Madison Yard is the Illinois Transit Assembly Corporation's facilities.  They store/overhaul private rail cars.  For more click here.
