ND&W Photos

Does anyone have any photos of any maintenance projects on the ND&W? I have viewed some old YouTube videos showing the horrible track conditions. I am wanting to see if much progress has been made.

Former NKP in Bluffton

Has the NKP (Wabash Central) east of Bluffton been abandoned too? I saw a map recently that shows it ending soon after crossing Highway 1.

Bungee Branch

Has any work on the Bungee Branch started yet? I remember hearing after the derailment that work was to be done on it this summer.

Does anyone know what the concrete structures along the former EL mainline in Preble were for?

EL Cars

I was travelling north on I-65 from Fort Knox last Friday and saw two EL coal cars on an overpass just north of Louisville. I could not get any pictures since I was driving.

Former Decatur EL Segment

I was back home a few weeks ago and noticed that the "Out of Service" signs have been removed from the former EL crossings in Decatur. What is that segment used for now?

Re: C&O and Nickel Plate Questions

Thank you. I have always wondered what the purpose of the bridge over the former C&O was. I know that the old Nickel Plate has not been abandoned and hope to see traffic return to it someday. One more question: Does the line to Hartford City see traffic anymore? I remember seeing a Conrail local on ...

C&O and Nickel Plate Questions

I was travelling through Indiana recently on I-69 and had the following questions. Why was the Interstate bridge over the old C&O, Chicago to Cincinnati line, right-of-way replaced and not filled in during construction in that area? The former bridges over the Erie-Lackawanna were filled in when the...

Former PRR Line

In the recent edition of TRAINS there is a picture of what is described as a former PRR line in Indiana that is being considered for high speed. It says it was the route of the Broadway Limited. Didn't the Broadway Limited run on what is now CFE tracks? The line shown in the picture looks unused.

Re: Signal Question

Thank you. That makes sense as there is a siding just a couple of miles ahead. It was definitely a day of firsts as less than five minutes later another train came up the same direction, but was stopped by the signal. I have never seen two trains that close together before. The railroad we were watc...

Signal Question

My son and I were train watching a few days ago here at Fort Leavenworth and witnessed a yellow blinking signal. We have seen that before, but it usually changes to green before the train passes. This time it just kept blinking up until the train passed and turned red. What does a yellow blinking si...
