[This was probably south of Dearborn Station, but it will take some research to find where it was. Both Erie and Wabash used the C&WI to get to Dearborn.]

Its 1977 with outbound with C&NW cars going past the old Erie Frt house.
Note the water tower. So Bill's picture is the northeast side of the two-story office building part, and Mark's picture is along the southwest side of the one-story freight handling part.

Mark Llanuza posted three photos, the third of which is the one above, with the comment:
