Chicago & Western Indiana
Chicago, Illinois (Twenty-First Street Crossing)
July 28, 1971

In a followup to the preceding slide, the Erie Lackawanna transfer run has rounded the bend at 21st St. Crossing and is banging over the Pennsylvania's rails. In the background is the former Atchison, Topkea & Santa Fe passenger equipment facility; the Santa Fe's connecting track to the Pennsylvania is in the near foreground. The Erie had a large fleet of Alco RS-3's, such as no. 1054 seen here.
