I'm standing in Indiana looking south. I am standing on a siding, that continues and and this siding has a switch a little further down as a train would have to pass this switch and then make a reverse move to make it to the customers dock doors, The mainline use to continue in this photo just to the left of the siding however the main has been lifted and the ROW was cleared of anything that resembled a RR ever existed

This photo is taken 180 degrees of the previous picture and you can see the former siding leaving the mainline. there was a switch here at one time but the switch was removed and when this was realigned the switch was removed and was straight lined into the facility

There are people on this Board that has ran a locomotive and train over this track, This pic is taken on the Main

Don't recognize anything, yet, looks like some of the old FW&J when I first saw it but that was well before these pictures were ever taken. After a couple of days, I'm wondering if we could have a clue.

Somewheere on the old Eel River/Vandalia line? Interesting collection of old junk campers in upper left should be a clue to someone.

Yes Sir, The section that is in Indiana was disconnected just north of the Stateline. While rail is still in place future looks pale but at least it is in place.

And JW did run on this section ?

Being on the extra board in the Fort yes I have been there. I would be head brakeman to Grand Rapids get 8 hours rest then Greyhound back to the Fort. Only time got North is when old timers would mark off. All Northbound firemen and 3rd brakemen would leave the run at Sturgis. My last trip on this section was 45 years ago.

I think you'll find the Tollroad removed the bridges over the GR&I, recently, too.
