A spectacular Chicago sunset
Author: inCHI

Last week I got off work in the loop, saw a hint of a notable sunset between the buildings, and sped west on my bike to the more open view shown here.

The train timing did not work at too well, as you will see that the most spectacular part of the sunset had no trains involved. It used to be around 7pm that NS came to switch the grain mill here, but I didn't see them around.

As the rails get silent, the colors get more intense

Great stuff in here, plus the very first Amtrak F40... or what's left of it.

The second to the last one is really neat.  A dark signal bridge set against lit buildings.  An old signal bridge set against modern buildings.

Nicely framed.  Nice contrast in colors.

Where is the LIKE button?

Thanks for all the comments. The PRR position light signals are certainly iconic and always make for an interesting view.
