A Wabash Picture

Post by Wayne Gest » Sun Feb 28, 2021 10:08 pm

These pictures have been released for viewing to the public, thanks to the folks at the Lake States Railway Historical Association. Most of the collections are aimed at Chicago area railroads but there are some Nickel Plate pictures and I found this one Wabash Fort Wayne picture, with the bonus of a Fort Wayne landmark that, do I understand correctly, it's no longer there?

Was it not stored away for safe keeping?
