Don's Rail Photos

Chicago West Pullman & Southern RR

The CWP&S was a switching road on the far south side of Chicago. It almost seemed like an in-plant road for the steel mills in the area. I visited the road in 1948 and found steam still being used, but most activity seemed to be hauling slag to nearby dumps. Now the railroad is a part of Chicago Rail Link.

Let's begin by looking at steam.

And now for the diesels.

37, SW1, was built by Electro-Motive in September 1942, #1741, as Chicago & North Western 1210. It was renumbered 615 on August 23, 1971, and sold to CWPS as 37 when it was retired.
