IHB Burnham (State Line) Yard

B&OCT Map, 134th is 136th in Indiana
First of all, this yard should not be confused with the nearby South Shore Freight Burnham Yard. Secondly, some railfans call it the IHB State Line Yard.

Unlike many yards in the Chicagoland area, I see from the satellite image that this yard still has all of its longer tracks.

Some switching moves at IHB state line yard, late afternoon Thursday July 27 2017.....#1 and #2.

Update: Arturo Gross' 2017 Flickr photo shows the yard in the background.
