You'd think you were in port and not in Chicago :D

Cleveland in some respects is a Port Town for those awesome Great Lakes Steamer Ships :D Have you seen those things out of the water? Massive! :o

I love how the tracks border along the road with no fencing or anything. It creates a very gritty industrial scene I just love, almost like the gravel under the tracks just melt into the road

you said they built something here. Where did they move all of the train activities to?
