Erie [Erie Lackawanna]
Hammond, Indiana (State Line Crossing)
June 17, 1971

This easthbound Erie Lackawanna freight is on shared rails of the Erie and Chesapeake & Ohio, to become the Chicago & Western Indiana at the state line just past the tower. The tracks to the extreme left of the small building belong to the Nickel Plate Road (Norfolk & Western), while the tracks in the foreground crossing from left to lower right are the Baltimore & Ohio's mainline. Barely visible is the crossing of the Indiana Harbor Belt's line just past the large tower.
