Chicago and Northern Indiana Railroad Interlocking Towers, which has links to another photo and a track plan.

Here in our new cover photo we see Erie Lackawanna PA's lead a manifest past the tower at Burnham, Illinois on June 17, 1967.

John Fuller's 1970 photo shows there was a connector or industrial spur that cuts diagonally across the NKP and SC&S tracks. Paul's photo above implies that track connects with the C&WI.
A problem with these historic aerial photos is that, unless they have laid fresh ballast, it is hard to find tracks. It looks like the tower is in the lower-right corner of the red rectangle and a shadow in the upper-left corner. But the tower and shadow don't align quite right. So I'm not sure of the exact location of the tower.

Things were still looking pretty good on the Erie-Lackawanna as this Also C425 leads an eastbound fast moving Piggy-Back train past Burnham tower. The engine has just crossed the PRR's Bernice Cutoff. This was Chicago and Western Indiana trackage at the time of this July, 1968 photo. (John Morris photo)
Paul Enenback has a 1967 photo of a southbound Pennsy about to cross the CSS tracks.
