IHB Osborn Yard and Kankakee Line.

Nate Carpenter posted
A seldom-seen locomotive and little known location; one of IHB's leased SW1500s switches back into the Osborn Yard off of the Kankakee Line. Taken on the 169th Street viaduct in Hammond, IN.
Unlike many yards in the Chicago area, this yard is still intact.

IHB operates the northern part of the NS/NYC Kankakee Belt, which is the northern part of the NYC/Big Four Egyptian Line.

The train would stay just south of Osborn Junction.

Update: a video of a SW1500 switching it.
