Griffith, Indiana is a town 6 miles east of the Illinois state line and is where the Canadian National's South Bend, Matteson, and Elsdon Subdivisions all come together. Griffith used to be one of the largest interlockings in the world.At one time 5 railroads crossed through town with the EJE having 2 lines.CN acquired the EJE in January of 2009, which ended the two railroads crossing and becoming one.The Elsdon Sub is controlled by the CSX from Chicago to Munster even though it is still owned by CN.
