Broadview Tower: ICwest over IHB

ICwest is my nickname for CN/IC/CC&P/ICG/IC/Chicago, Madison & Northern.

The girder tops would be the bridge over Addison Creek, so we are looking north.

Shot from the IC line crossing the IHB in Broadview/Westchester, IL. Early to mid-80's photo IIRC.
Brandon McShane It would have to be very early '80s as the FP45s were gone by mid-decade.
[The industry with a smokestack, tall water tower and office building has been replaced by Mullins Food Products. That facility was built with an industrial spur, on a steep ramp, going directly into one of their buildings. I wonder if the spur is still used.]
The overpass is rather long because IHB had four tracks running through here. The interchange track is on a ramp since the railroads are grade separated.

Same spot a little earlier in time by a couple years.
