Bridges at Blue Island Crossing

Watercolor… There are five bridges over the Calumet Sag Channel at Blue Island, Illinois… four of which are very busy with the CSX Railroad, Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad (IHB), Iowa Interstate Railroad (IAIS) and Canadian National (CN) all maintaining very active trackage. Several of the tracks cross each other before they all cross the busy street of Broadway and then onward under the elevated METRA commuter line. Generally, 80 to 90 trains pass through this junction every day. Illustrated… a pair of Chicago & North Western GE AC4400CW’s on the far west IAIS track (former Rock Island) , adjacent to a pair of Indiana Harbor Belt EMD GP40-2s, crossing Canadian National track (former Grand Trunk).
