First, surprised we haven't had discussion around here regarding any aspect of the Indiana Harbor Belt.

Now to point; only yesterday did I observe the physical interchange between BNSF and IHB at Congress Park (just E of La Grange). It looks badly deteriorating like it hasn't seen a train in quite some time.

It was always active back when I was with the MILW (49% owner).

I doubt if the traffic has "dried up" but rather rerouted. If the latter, how?
