Remarks & Notes 
Southern Railway 4501 has departed Dearborn Station and is about to pound the diamonds at 21st Street Interlocking as it heads south along the C&WI toward Indiana with The Independence Limited. At one time this junction had 26 diamonds and featured over 100 trains a day as the IC, Santa Fe, GM&O, and C&WI crossed the Pennsy mains. Note the Santa Fe's coach yard and engine facility in the background which includes a Fairbanks Morse switch and warbonnet F units. Tom Golden photo.
