Park & Lincoln Avenues | Dolton, IL 60419 | (708) 201-3307 | (708) 201-3307 fax
The Dolton Junction is the busiest rail intersection in the Chicago Southland with nearly 120 cars passing through daily. It is common to see two or three trains passing through simultaneously making for great images, but long delays in traffic. Norfolk Southern, BNSF, Canadian Pacific and Canadian National occasionally run through Dolton on Indiana Harbor Belt and CSX tracks. About a half-mile west, the former Illinois Central main line, now Metra Electric, passes over the Indiana Harbor Belt line.
A great and legal viewing location is the public parking lot behind Dolton’s Village Hall. This gives you a great view of the southeastern portion of the junction. The public park on Lincoln Avenue gives you a legal view of the northern portion of the junction.
