Street Running Mystery

It's a crummy photo of a photo, but not difficult to figure out where it was.

I don't recognize the buildings, so I don't think it is along SR1 North of Bluffton.

WAG along State St in the fort.

Mike:

It's north of Ft. Wayne. The track turned out into the street behind the photographer.

Yes, looking south from 3rd Ave. in Garrett, with Cowen St. on the right and Interurban St. on the left. I don't think the city posts signs on Interurban St. any longer.

The first maintenance barn was here in the grass boulevard. Indiana Service Corp. abandoned the track north of 3rd Ave. in 1937. South of 3rd Ave., seen above, was abandoned in 1945.

In the last few years before abandonment, ISC stored freight cars on this end of the line.
