Windy City Rails Volume 2 - Stateline & Jay Tower DVD
C. Vision's tour of the railroads in and around the Chicagoland area continues in Windy City Rails, Volume 2. In this program, videographer Marshall Beecher sets up at two exciting locations and captures more dynamic train watching action!
Our first stop is at Stateline Interlocking near Hammond, Indiana. Straddling the Illinois and Indiana border, Stateline was once the World's largest mechanical interlocking. This location was once home to 30 diamond crossings and has now whittled down to only 8. However, don't let the downgrade fool you, this location still has over 100 trains a day from the CSX, Norfolk Southern and Indiana Harbor Belt.
Then we head to Chicago Heights, Illinois at Jay Tower. This location is the crossing of the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern and the Union Pacific/CSX. The variety of trains at this location makes it a favorite among many area railfans! Bright orange locomotives from the EJ&E, along with the high horsepower monsters from the UP and CSX thunder over the diamonds at Jay Tower. Our cameras were even treated to a couple appearances of the Union Pacific's Katy and MoPac Heritage Locomotives!
If you like the sound of trains pounding diamonds, you will love this video!
