Gulf, Mobile & Ohio [Illinois Central Gulf]
The Jacksonville, Illinois station is nearly surrounded by active rail lines, with the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy on the left, the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio on the right, and the diamond crossing with the Wabash marked by the tower behind the station. This view looks north from East State Street. The CB&Q and GM&O lines will cross a few blocks south of the station behind the camera.
