Baltimore & Ohio
Hammond, Indiana (State Line Crossing)
June 17, 1972
At State Line Crossing (just over the Illinois state line from Hammond, Indiana) the Baltimore & Ohio crossed the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern, Chesapeake & Ohio, Nickel Plate Road, Monon and Indiana Harbor Belt in quick succession. The 20 mph speedboard as well as the lack of an overhead white target make clear the low speed inherent in multiple successive diamonds.
