Gulf, Mobile & Ohio
Chicago, Illinois (Brighton Park Crossing)
July 27, 1971

In addition to color position light signals, Brighton Park Crossing featured manually operated semaphores until relatively recently, probably the last remaining examples in the Chicago area. Here the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio main crossed the (from left to right) Pennsylvania, Baltimore & Ohio and Chicago Junction (a subsidiary of the New York Central's Chicago River & Indiana).
