Where Diz 1 4 2013 SOLVED

Postby Notch 8 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 4:24 pm

I went for a walk in the snow today.. I had shoes on and not boots.. I was suprised when I found this today.. The deck is wide enough to hold 2 tracks ! Picture was taken @ 2:30 today in the wonderful State of Indiana, I was North of 40 and East of 65

I speculate that it is on the Eel River Railroad roadbed.
What a nice bright afternoon to be out and about.
Thanks for the cheerful photos.

Would this be a former Winona RY right of way?

Wasn't most of the PRR St. Louis main south of Route 40? I was thinking somewhere on the Panhandle east of Red Key. Not grown up enough to be the EL, probably not grown up enough to be the Panhandle, either.

By looking at the pictures and you saying it is 2:30 it appears by the shadows that this railroad ran East-West. Right or wrong?

When you stop and think about it that's not much of a clue. It would be harder to name a line that didn't cross a PRR line. :twisted: :lol:

If it's not the Erie and not the Panhandle, it's either the Big Four, onetime P&E, east of Indy or it's the Wabash Chicago line west of South Milford. I vote Wabash.
