Ray Tutaj, Jr., took this shot using the old interchange train between the IC and Rock Island in LaSalle. The grade is steep and it is in a tunnel of trees. This picture on a section of rarely used track was taken Memorial Day 1999. Today the CSX picks up cement cars at the top of the hill where the old IC yard once was. Only a couple of tracks are left on the Gruber line. It's owned by the Lonestar Cement Co. in Oglesby, IL.
