Illinois Central
Chicago, Illinois (Ash Crossing)
July 27, 1971

An Illinois Central switcher on the IC's Iowa line heads east across the Pennsylvania (Penn Central), Baltimore & Ohio, and Chicago River & Indiana in turn at Chicago's Ash Crossing. Paralleling the IC is the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe's line to Dearborn Station. The bridges on the other side of the crossing cross the Chicago River. This view is looking north.
