Uniondale, Indiana in 2001
There are 5 short sections of rail left in Indiana: a small section
in Decatur, Laketon to Bolivar, Rochester to US 31, and Monterey to North
Judson. A 5th segment is a short remant of the south track just northwest
of the Broad St. crossing in Griffith. This was part of the shared
C&O right of way between Hammond and Griffith. The Decatur segment
is probably the most used section of the remaining 5. The rest of
the EL rail in Indiana has been pulled up and the right-of-way given back
to mother nature. Some has been reclaimed by farmers while other
sections are now office buildings or parking lots. Still, if you
look close enough at these locations there are some subtle signs of where
the EL once passed through.
