IC IMX Intermodal Yard

When the Chicago Produce Terminal became obsolete, IC sold the eastern part and converted the remaining part to an intermodal yard.

Dan Tracy Wow, IMX later used by the SP.Keith Peeples Looks like IC was ahead of their time. Some railroads were still loading circus style thru the seventies.
[I-55 is on the right, so we are looking East.]
David Wilson's Photoset has two 1988 photos when the land was the ICG IMX intermodal yard: looking east and looking west. The second photo also shows both smokestacks on the Crawford Generating Plant. It also shows the lift towers for the Western Avenue Bridge.

Google Earth set to 3/26/1999
It looks like it was still being used when this 1999 image was taken.

It is no longer being used, but not because the land was needed for something else. Some of the tracks still exist.
