State Line track diagram

State Line Tower in Hammond, Indiana was North America's largest mechanical interlocking. The plant was put in service in 1897 and retired in August 2000.

 

This interior view from the tower's last year of existence shows the tower's track diagram – a replacement diagram installed in the late Forties or early Fifties.
