This view looks north from the street overpass at the Bloomington depot. In the right foreground are the diamonds for the New York Central (Peoria & Eastern) and, paralleling on the north, the Nickel Plate's Peoria branch (now Norfolk Southern). In the background at left we see the GM&O's transfer tracks and wye leading to the Purina plant west of the depot and then on to San Jose, Petersburg, Jacksonville and the connection with the Kansas City line at Murrayville. During the 1950s this depot was the only Bloomington stop for Peoria & Eastern as well as GM&O trains. However, when the P&E still had its own depot a mile east in downtown Bloomington this stop was called "Alton Crossing" in its timetables.
