Dennis DeBruler So the train is taking a track that curves around the north side of Rockwell Yard. I would have thought Othrough trains would use the straight tracks on the south side of the yard.

Brian Morgan I think these were yard units that used to work the old Pere Marquette Rockwell Yard off of Kedzie Avenue and 73rd Street. These have the markings of C&O.,. B&OCT Units by this era had a large B&OCT RR painted on both sides of the engine cabinets along each side of the cowling. Like this one at Grand Central Station in Chicago.

While discussing cows and calfs, we got into a discussion about C&O in Chicago.

They were part of the C&WI gang, but where was their freight house and freight yard? Actually, they kind of bounced around. At one time they went to the Grand Central Station.

Bob Lalich C&O had freight houses at South Water St Yard on the IC and near Grand Central on the B&OCT. The latter was originally Pere Marquette.
