Erie [Erie Lackawanna]
Hammond, Indiana (State Line Crossing)
June 17, 1972

A westbound Erie Lackawanna freight, on shared Erie/Chesapeake & Ohio rails, is about to cross the Baltimore & Ohio mainline at State Line Crossing just west of Hammond, Indiana. In a few moments it will be on Chicago & Western Indiana tracks for the remainder of its run. The rails to the far right belong to the Nickel Plate Road (Norfolk & Western). Barely visible at the far left is the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern.
