Description

The late 1990s saw something in the Chicago area that had long ago started to disappear elsewhere: Towers at railroad junctions. Towers are interesting by themselves, but the junction means lots of traffic! In this nearly two hour look at towers in the Chicago area, we visit JB Tower in West Chicago, Joliet’s UD Tower, B12, in Franklin Park, B17 in Bensenville and Deval Tower in Des Plaines.

Besides unique yard towers we also see Rondout Tower, Griffith Tower, Bend Tower in South Bend, Hohman in Hammond, Jay Tower in Chicago Heights, IHB Tower in Dolton and Ridgely Tower in Springfield. It’s pretty much non-stop action on these mainline diamonds!

    Any place you find railroads crossing other railroads is interesting. A diamond and/or junction means…. action. The towers that used to be associated with the diamonds/junctions added to the interest of the railroads as they were a classic part of railroad action. The greater Chicago region has a huge number of railroads and with it….. lots of towers. Different companies crossing each other adds to the variety of the trains, and with it the sounds we all note as a part of the industry. This video shows a wonderful part of history that is all but gone forever. To the producers…..Well done
