Old Caboose with Graffiti, Arlington Heights, Illinois (2015-05-21 15-10-32b)
The caboose is located in an industrial area at Oakton (Rt 83) and Badger Road (about half a mile west of Elmhurst Road) in Arlington Heights, Illinois. It was originally the Rock Island's #17042 but is currently labeled Oakton Junction 2400. The owners of the Oakton Junction shopping mall bought it from the C&NW for $1,000 in 1987. The mall was torn down and the land is now owned by Moran Transportation.
The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. Editing was done with ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I adjusted the lighting, raised the contrast, clarity and vibrance, raised the saturation in the reds and yellows and adjusted the levels.
