Nickel Plate Road [Norfolk & Western]
Hammond, Indiana (State Line Crossing)
June 17, 1972

This southbound Norfolk & Western freight on former Nickel Plate Road rails, led by GP30 no. 535, is about to cross the Monon (now Louisville & Nashville) on its way through State Line Crossing near Hammond, Indiana. The tracks to the right belong to the Chesapeake & Ohio but will become Chicago & Western Indiana upon crossing the Illinois state line just ahead..
