The great thing about living in a city as big as Chicago: you never run out of new areas to explore and new things to photograph. I stumbled upon this photo while walking through what appeared to be a fairly residential block in an area known as "River West." This is the rail spur that starts at the Kinzie Ave railroad bridge, itself a Chicago landmark, and snakes northwest to where I was standing. It's not currently in use, however, this line used to stretch all the way east to Navy Pier.
Here's another photo of the same rail line from the vantage point of Chicago and Halsted:
