    Found This Unique Picture

    While browsing Flickr I found a very neat picture of the back of an IC&E unit. The picture was taken in Franklin Park. Just a different side of railroad photography that you don't see very often. If you click the thumb you get all the info on the picture. The picture comes from Flickr.com
