GP60M's through Romeo

The light was right and so was the Fuji Color when this Eastbound train was caught at Romeo, Illinois. Just North of Joliet and Just South of Lemont. Some time in 1995, I believe.
I love the shot. This is where my dad used to take me to train watch when I was 5 and 6(around '95). I'm guessing you took it from the old approach to the swing bridge that crossed the Sanitary and Shipping Canal bridge into Romeo. Brings back memories.
 
You are correct, slopes. I believe the bridge was inoperable when this picture was shot, but I remember going there for years when it was swinging!
