Gulf, Mobile & Ohio
Chicago, Illinois (Brighton Park Crossing)
July 27, 1971
A Gulf, Mobile & Ohio eastbound transfer run climbs over Western Avenue after traversing Brighton Park Crossing. Note that the GM&O's Alton-era color position light signals face away from the crossing; all trains had to stop before proceeding through Brighton Park and were governed by the manual semaphores exclusively.
