Deval Crossing is in DesPlaines, a suburb just north of O’Hare Airport and 17 miles NW from Chicago. Deval Tower controlled the C&NW triple track Harvard line and its ‘scoots’ commuter service from Crystal Lake crossing the SOO line from Wisconsin. Nearby but out of sight is another C&NW “New Line’, an all freight Chicago bypass accessing Proviso Yard directly. Deval Tower controlled this crossing until it was gutted by fire in 2005 and replaced by remote control. Steam ’scoot’ locomotives were usually powered by a class of 325 4-6-0 Ten Wheelers and in this instance, the ‘scoot’ is powered by Ten Wheeler #493. Signed F Carlson Aug '86.
