Indianna Harbor Belt freight train passing through Chicago Ridge Illinois. May 1990.

An Indianna Harbor Belt railroad freight train is seen passing through Southwest Suburban Chicago Ridge Illinois. (Oaklawn Area) The train shown here is seen moving Southeast past the railroad crossing on Ridgeland Avenue, about to pass the old Interlocking tower (Gone) that gaurded and controlled the Norfolk Southern railroad crosstracks. (Formerly "Wabash" )
This interlocking train traffic control tower was closed in 1993 and Demolished in stages a few years later. Only the block signals and the crosstracks are at this busy junction today.
