Osborn Junction: Kankakee Belt vs. NKP

(CRJ)
Tim Shanahan shared Steven J. Brown's photo
Nickel Plate 765 on home rails crossing the IHB at the long gone Osborn Tower. This is a deadhead move to Fort Wayne after a weekend of CNW excursions out of Chicago. September 9, 1985.
Please visit this Flickr photo because this 1985 photo of the Osborn Junction still has the junction tower.

Osborn Junction sees Milwaukee/SOO trains because Milwaukee switched from their Chicago, Terre Haute & South Eastern route to NYC's Egyption route.

Another Flickr picture shows a Milwaukee train on their original Chicago, Terre Haute & South Eastern (page 61 of Trainwatcher's Guide) route near Faithorn.
