Indiana Harbor Belt
Blue Island, Illinois (Blue Island Yard (IHB))
July 26, 1971

The New York Central's majority ownership in the Indiana Harbor Belt (the Milwaukee Road owned the smaller half) is evident in switcher no. 8779's paint scheme, seen here from the South Halsted Street bridge at the IHB's Blue Island Yard. Only a replacement herald on the cab would be needed to complete the illusion.
