Tollestone Junction: CSX/NYC/MC vs. CF&E/PRR

Matt's comment:
Tollestone Google satellite of the new diamond. Not sure if it's installed yet but it's on the ground in this picture. MCRR (CSX) & PRR Chicago Fort Wayne Line (CF&E).
Great to see all the new roadbed, new trackage and the new crossings.
I don't know what Google Map they are using because when I access it, I still see the old configuration where CSX ripped up the track. Does their phone app use more up-to-date images than their web site?

Here's another photo of the MC-PFtW&C station at Tolleston(e) Indiana in 1910. The location is roughly 9th & Garfield in what is today's Gary Indiana. The track from left to right is the short lived CLS&SB (South Shore) streetcar line, not often seen in photos.
Scene is looking west, PRR train is eastbound.
