Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Joliet, Illinois (Joliet Union Station)
June 1, 1973

Any doubt that Joliet's Union Station was a semaphore-lover's paradise in the early 1970's should be dispelled by this view. Here the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe crosses the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific at grade; the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio main is at left. Note the pedestal dwarf semaphore near the end of the platform.
