William Shapotkin posted two photos with the comment:
For many years, 67th St Tower controlled the junction of the IC (Metra) Electric Mainline and South Chicago Branch. Additionally, there were xovers on the IC (non-electric) mainline as well. The 1903 photo shows the tower when it was located on the EAST side of the ROW. The present tower (no longer in service) is located on the west side of the ROW.

I see there are some puzzle (double-slip) switches to the north,,-87.../data=!3m1!1e3
Dennis DeBruler commented on William's posting
It just occurred to me that the centenary would have to be interesting above those switches. One of the better peeks I could find using Street View,!3m6!1e1!3m4...
2020 Update:
I've seen flyover junctions before. I just discovered that the South Chicago Branch is a "flyunder."
