I've had this photo posted for a couple months, going on "memory" as to the location:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=145723

However, I visited Barr Yard (where I thought this was taken) recently, and it appears to not be the location of this photo. I'm 99% certain this photo was taken in the Chicago area in fall/winter 1992, but can't identify the yard either by memory, map, or by persuing every "Illinois Yard" photo in RP.net search.

Any help would be appreciated.

I wouldn't rule out the possibilty of it being Barr Yard. It looks like the photo may have been taken from the south side of Barr Yard, looking west with the Halsted St. overpass in the background. The sanding tower there now looks different, but there is the possibility that a new sanding tower was put in place at some point over the last 15 years.
