Tower B-17: CP/Milwaukee vs. CP/Milwaukee in Bensenville, IL

Bird's Eye View
Until it warms up and I can get my own shot, I'm going to make do with this image.

I learned the tower's name from this posting. Once I had the name, I could Google search "Bensenville B17" to find the location. I don't need to go back to a 1938 aerial photo because both routes and the tower still exist. The search also found a Chicago Railfan resource that I record here for future reference. And another railfan resource.

[Jerry confirmed that is Tower B17 on the left.]
Sam Carlson posted a couple of Jan 1985 photos and a contemporary photo that includes B17.
