IC SD70 1029 leads M371 south past Homewood Tower. Glad to finally get a deathstar passing Homewood Tower.

Bob Kalal posted five photos with the comment: "Homewood Illinois, ICG Switch Tower at the south end of Markham Yard."





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.
