IHB 1509 at Calumet

By: Marc Lingenfelter


Description

IHB 1509 at Calumet - An SW1500 is light and is about to hit the CSX/IHB diamond at Calumet. This is a nice location to hit. Trackline coverage easily available. Access to the location is right off a main road. The IHB scheme is one that was around back in the 1940s I believe.
