9/15/12: A lasting vestige of "The Rock"; Rock island Line. I was too young (or foolish enough) not to photograph it in it's prime or decline.
A great movie, not for the acting or plot or anything is "Omen II" a pivotal scene at the end takes place in a Rock Island Line intermodal terminal south of LaSalle Street Station when a dude gets croaked by a run-away SW...Love that scene, not cuz the dude gets whacked but because it shows late '70s Centraa railroading! How these old passenger terminal properties were turned into piggyback facilities before being abandoned for boring condoz!!!
