Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

Re: Saint Joseph Valley Railway

Yes a very great pic ! Especially is being over 100 years old. Any idea how many boxcars the St Joseph Valley Railroad had ? Curious if the boxcars were for online service or if they were interchanged ? I love to see anything St Joseph Valley.. too many miles and not enough traffic..
