Remarks & Notes 
Conductor Wally Harpp walks through the brush to the call box in order to obtain permission, and get the signal, to proceed across the EJ&E Porter Line with his westbound train, which is on the former Wabash Railroad 4th district. It's en route from Westville IN to N&W's Calumet Yard in Chicago with several gondolas loaded with old used railroad ties. The community of Crocker still exists today on the far west side of Chesterton, but all you'll find here now is a bike trail.
