  • My favorite railroad is the IHBRR, which is headquartered in Hammond, In. It has 5 yards that I know of: 1) is the Gibson Yard in Hammond, In; 2 is the Blue Island Yard in Riverdale, Il; 3 is the Alsip Yard (which is basically for switching cars in and out of the industries in Alsip, Il). 4) is the Argo Yard at 63rd and Archer Ave, in Summit, Il. I think they got their name from the fact that they are to the northeast of Argo Corn Products. 5) Yard 5 is Norpaul in Melrose Park, Il. ralph zimmer n9kym@aol.com
