KCS Willows Tower...

... in E St. Louis closed Monday. At Willows, two CSX lines cross the TRRA and NS, and the CSX line from Indianapolis changes ownership from CSX to KCS within Willows interlocking. One of two remaining open interlocking towers in the St. Louis (the other being UP's Lenox Tower in Mitchell -- itself slated to close next month), the interlocking machine is supposed to be preserved at a transportation museum in Kansas City. Supposedly, the building will soon be demolished, which is a small shame because it is one of the last surviving examples of PRR Lines West interlocking towers.
