Mike didn't have any details but Michael Moran commented: "Peru, In. C&O/ Chessie yard, all of which is gone today."

Danville, IL

Lyons Yard, -14 degrees in 1949, posted
I don't know for sure that the following was Lyons Yard, but it was the only yard-looking thing I could find in Danville.

Today, it has been rebuilt as a small yard and more modern service facilities. This line was Big Four. If I'm reading the 2014 Illinois State Road Map correctly, it is now VVRR. But I could not find VVRR in a list of reporting marks.
