Missouri Pacific
Chicago, Illinois (Forest Hill Crossing)
June 18, 1972

Another Missouri Pacific caboose (no. 13345) is caught at Forest Hill Crossing on Belt Railway of Chicago rails shared with the Chesapeake & Ohio, crossing the Baltimore & Ohio. The tracks in the foreground belong to the Wabash (now Norfolk & Western). Note the Chicago & Eastern Illinois flatcar preceding the caboose; MP purchased the C&EI in 1967 to gain access to Chicago and is probably operating on interchange agreements originally created for the C&EI.
