I'd imagine it was put up by the Big 4 if it has a double at Ninth St., if the Big 4 actually served the Bag Factory themselves.

You think the "9 . 72" stamped on the rail corresponds to September 1872?

I found a third sign in Ray, looking south into Indiana on the INER:

Was this track related to the track in Goshen?

Update, 2 years later:

In addition to the legible sign on the Bag Factory spur and the illegible ones on 9th St. in Goshen and on the INER, I've found another illegible one. In Ligonier, a sign is visible from Mercer St. where Water St. would cross NS if it did. I have no photos of this location, so you'll either have to trust me or check it out yourself:

The rusty old signs i've noticed in Goshen seem to a "no trespassing" message with more verbal elaboration. They are old, i'd wager 1920 to 1940 era. Gary
