Burnham, Illinois, 17 June’67
A pair of Pennsylvania Railroad E-units are crossing the South Shore tracks at “Burnham Tower” just east of the South Shore’s station at “Hegewisch.” After crossing the South Shore the units will cross the Chicago & Western Indiana, by which so many railroads gained access from State Line Tower – to Chicago. Then the wheels will clump across the Norfolk & Western’s former Nickel Plate mainline from Chicago to Buffalo. The train behind those two PRR units is the every-other-day “South Wind” on it’s way to Florida by way of connections at Louisville. This branch of the Pennsy connects the mainline to Pittsburgh with the mainline to Indianapolis and Louisville. Burnham Tower is just to the left.
