Re: Triple Crown Yard

I see trains regularly on the Belt from my place of employment. They appear to be NS and are usually quite long with multiple unit power on the point.

Re: Changes in Northeast Indiana in or about 1918

Although not 1918, the CB&C stopped the year before in 1917, which fits the topic "in or about 1918".

Live Steam Meet

Last month, the Tri-State Locomotive Club held it's September meet in Andrews, Indiana. Larry Lett filmed some video of the meet and has posted it on YouTube. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkgavaShn2Q

This is a privately owned 1/8 scale track that has about 3000 feet of line.

Re: Churubusco Snyder Grain

If I'm not mistaken, the track in the above photo ended literally just feet west of the crossing. I used to go that way to my aunt's place at Blue Lake and remember seeing the end of the rails from the crossing.

Re: Churubusco Snyder Grain

The crossing in new 30 was built. I distinctly remember crossing it as a child with railroad cars being stored east/north of the crossing. It was only protected with crossbucks.

Re: Current NKP passenger "station"

Bob, you have probably seen pictures of the original NKP depot before the elevation. It was still there after the elevation was built and I assume everything used that building, as before the elevation. Sometime after passenger service ceased, someone torched it and it burned down. I remember when i...

Re: T&C Interurban 1913-1914

It was California Road back then. I think it wasn't renamed Coliseum until the 70's.

Re: Train Op Question

Mike (formerly WP) is the crossing of the former PRR main and the Wabash main. Junction was where the GR&I went north from the PRR main plus the crossing of the NYC/NKP line.

Train Op Question

Yesterday on my way home from work (about 4:30 pm), I saw something I had never seen before. There was an east bound train by the highway curve at Swinney Park. What was unusual was it began moving westward. By the time I got to the Jefferson underpass, it was moving at a fairly good clip. It appear...

Re: NKP # 157

It kind of looks like the area south of Taylor Street looking north except for the siding coming off the main going south on the east side of the track. All the old Sandborn maps and topo maps that I looked at show no sidings running off to the southeast of the track, only to the northeast in this a...

Re: Pennsylvania S2

The top two photos were used in our (Three Rivers RR Heritage) early calendars. One time at a show, a man stopped by our table and said he was that little boy sitting in the grass next to the locomotive. I do not have his name.

Re: Ft. Wayne Railroad Elevations 1910-1913

Reading this thread, I got to thinking that I have never seen photos of FWM&C trains (or FWJ&S for that matter). Would they have had fancy script or very basic?

Re: 1919 Wabash ETT

The town of Cedar (or what’s left of it) is at CR 7 and SR 205. Could the depot have been there?

Re: OmniSource site, Headwaters Junction and Nickel Plate 624

"Of course, if we're at West Wayne, that line to the Zoo/Franke Park seems like a bridge too far, unless it only operated between Franke and Cass Street." Maybe. but in the "What if" department: HWJ locates to WW; track replaced to Cass Street/North River area to establish a short ride; FWRHS gains ...
