Mazonia, M.P. 62.6
The GM&O's Main Line and Pequot Lines diverge here. The Pequot Line runs
west-northwest to Coal City where the GM&O and Santa Fe team up and run joint
double track to Plaines just south of Joliet Union Station. This photo was taken
shortly after the rails were laid in early November, 2007. The straight rail
will eventually punch through the wall to hold the Main Line and the town of
Elwood plus a coal mine and then reconnect with the Pequot Line (diverging
route) at South Joliet Yard.
