Erie-Lackawana at Broadway
Title:  Erie-Lackawana at Broadway
Description:  This scene no longer exists. After Conrail this former mainline was abandoned. The tracks just behind the crossing guard (the guy in the tee shirt) on the left are the current CN Chicago-Port Huron main (GT at this time). The double track main in the foreground is the EJE (now CN). PC (ex-NYC) had a single track route parallel to the "J" and the C&O diverted off the E-L just south of the complex crossing. The guard house has been moved from this location to the right and northeast quadrant of the intersection. Griffith is developing a modest rail history park on that site.

MP 3513 (UP Livery)
Title:  MP 3513 (UP Livery)
Description:  This southbound freight is one of UP's expedited auto and autoparts trains between the upper midwest and Texas or Mexico (via the Laredo gateway). Maintaining MP initials yet wearing UP livery was a short lived practice for a couple years after the 1982 merger of UP, MP and WP. The double track is the former CR mainline (now CSXT) from Indianapolis to St Louis. The MP single track line paralled CR between Altamont and St Elmo. The lines were operated as paired tracks and the southbound connection at St Elmo became a major interchange for run-through trains between the Indianapolis Avon Yard and TX.
