l o o k at the mainline action on some of the Chicago area and northwest Indiana belt lines. This program focuses on some of the mainline action on the Elgin Joliet & Eastern (EJ&E), Indiana Har bor Belt (IHB) and CSX's former Baltimore & Ohio Chi ca-go Terminal (B&OCT). The EJ&E is the outermost Belt line around the Chicago area and crosses every major railroad coming into Chicago! The IHB and f o rmer B&OCT intersect with most of the major railroads closer to and in Chicago. The EJ&E and IHB are heavy steel haulers as well as providers of transfer service among the other railroads. Many of the major roads run road trains and transfers on these belt lines and we capture the action. In addition we capture several EJ&E and IHB trains with their well-maintained classic EMD power and cabooses! There are seven ac tive tower junctions shown in this program! Video captured from 1995 through late 1997.
