Chicago Short Line
South Chicago, Illinois (South Chicago Crossing)
June 2, 1973

A Chicago Short Line caboose hop is seen here on Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific rails as it passes under the Chicago Skyway and is about to cross under the former Pennsylvania and New York Central (now Penn Central) mainlines. The rails diverging off to the right into the distance belong to the Belt Railway of Chicago. The track at far left is the connecting track with the Pennsylvania.
