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

An eastbound freight is clattering across the diamonds of Indiana Harbor Belt rails at State Line Crossing. Here at the state line marked by the IHB line the freight leaves Chicago & Western Indiana rails for shared Erie and Chesapeake & Ohio rails down to Griffith, Indiana. The Nickel Plate Road mainline is barely visible to the left of the lead unit.
