ICG TOWER-HOMEWOOD, ILLINOIS
Charles Sullivan Flickr 2008 Photo Charles asked about the purpose of the building. David Daruszka answered:
Former interlocking tower that controlled the switches at the south end of Markham Yard. These switches are now controlled remotely by a dispatcher at Homewood. The tower still contains electrical equipment for the switches.Charles recommends watching from the small viewing platform on the east side because it has a speaker that lets you here what is being said on the radio.
