An eastbound IHB switching train heads toward the railrod crossing at South Lawndale Avenue near West 49th Street. The adjacent Indiana Harbor Belt "Stockyards" branch was abandoned in December of 1988. The train is passing by the construction site of the future Chicago Transit Authority's Orange line rapid transit to nearby Midway Airport.
