Bridges at Blue Island Crossing . Watercolor . 12" x 16"

... There are five bridges over the Calumet Sag Channel at Blue Island, Illinois... four of which are very busy with the CSX Railroad, Indiana Harbor
Belt Railroad (IHB), Iowa Interstate Railroad (IAIS) and Canadian National (CN) all maintaining very active trackage. Several of the tracks cross
each other before they all cross the busy street of Broadway and then onward under the elevated METRA commuter line. Generally, 80 to 90 trains
pass through this junction every day. Illustrated... a pair of Chicago & North Western GE AC4400CW's on the far west IAIS track, adjacent to a
pair of Indiana Harbor Belt GP40-2s, crossing CN track. This watercolor was painted for a Bella Terra Maps publication.

A Giclee Print is available of this watercolor painting / railroad art.
