Album Info:I spent a couple hours today shooting along the IHB in Chicago Ridge. Trains were moving slowly due to crossing gate malfunctions at Ridgeland Ave (they looked like they were working to me). Everytime a train approached the crossing, the brakeman would disembark and flag the crossing while the engines passed. Also an IHB truck was on hand monitoring the situation but everything seemed to be in working order. Weird. All pics in this album were taken between 1pm and 3:30 CST.
