Re: Churubusco Snyder Grain

The attached 1957 track map shows where the track was abandoned west of Busco.

Someone asked when the track was removed. Columbia City-Churubusco was removed in or after 1961, and Churubusco-Auburn Jct. in the 1973-1976 timeframe.

Re: Churubusco Snyder Grain

My apology. The CR-850 photo was 3 years after abandonment of C City-Busco.

I need to stop posting stuff.

Re: Churubusco Snyder Grain

The highway crossing was built and abandoned it at nearly the same time. That means PB&W (PRR) paid for the grade crossing removal? This photo is looking north on CR-850W on the west side of Churubusco in the year that the C City-Busco track was abandoned. The stop sign is at SR-205. The NAPA store ...

Too bad. It's an impressive structure. Put a house on top.

It's PRR southbound on the GR&I crossing the NYC Air Line at UK Tower in Kendallville?

Re: Lima Road 1913

Yes, it's the line from Ft. Wayne to Garrett, where it split into lines to Kendallville and Waterloo. The line was sold to new owners in 1913, and they photographed all track-highway crossings later that year. I found the photos in various places over the years; three recently, including this one. S...

Lima Road 1913

This is looking north on Lima Rd. at Geller Ditch, just north of Irene Byron, in late-1913. The road was raised sometime later, putting the track in a dip where automobiles bottomed their suspensions. This track was in service until May 1945 and taken up later that summer.

T&C Interurban 1913-1914

When the Toledo & Chicago Interurban was reorganized in 1913, its successor, Ft. Wayne & Northwestern, photographed the rail/highway crossings. The attached photo is looking east on Coliseum across Lima Rd.

Not quite seven lanes in each direction.

Indiana Northeastern Engine House, Hudson

A few photos inside the engine house on the west side of Hudson. IN has 10 locomotives. Most or all of the B-B units were at Hudson, and C-C at Montpelier.
