Picking up interchange cars from Canadian National at Kankakee.
This Kankakee, Beaverville, & Southern/NYC/Big Four bridge seems to have escaped the attention of the Bridge Hunters as well as mine.

Photo from the Kankakee Daily Journal archive of an eastbound Big 4 passenger train crossing the Kankakee River at Aroma Park, IL long before the James Whitcomb Riley streamlined service began in 1941. This train would have stopped a few minutes earlier at the Kankakee Big 4 depot, mentioned in an earlier post.

Here's a view now, sans train, looking the other way. KBSR still has a regular interchange with the CN (ICRR) at Kankakee. Not every day but frequently.
Caption: “KB&S train rolls south across the Kankakee River bridge in Aroma Park, Illinois. This was actually two trains in one. They combined the cars and power in Kankakee before departing south. You can see the headlight of the second unit just off the end of the bridge.”
