Re: Blue Bell Columbia City IN

The attached photo was at Ellsworth and Madison looking southwest on the ERR mainline in 2002. Blue Bell is at left, and the ERR depots were in the pine trees at right-center, at the SE corner of Ellsworth and Whitley Sts. Am I right that the pine trees and the little park there were recently demol...

Re: What is going on with the bridge abutments on Broadway?

C/B means Catch Basin. Ken 8) And you can see that there is one directly below the "C/B", also marked with green paint. Seeing as the inlet looks to have been cleared, I wonder if the marks are just for the street dept to know where the inlets are. They're probably clearing snow away from the inlet...

Re: Wheredis 3/15/2013

Thank you, Nathan. A bit difficult finding them without coordinates though. The one looks like it went under the bridge on dirt and had a separate bridge on the northern approach. The other has too much growth to tell much at all. I take your word though on what you found when there. Google Earth i...

Re: Wherediz 3/16/2013

How about the Union and Bluffton Railroad? Started in 1855, restarted in 1866 and still not finished. Here's an excerpt from the 1882 history of Randolph county. I also included another entry about an unfinished railroad in the same area, a route connecting Union and Cambridge City: http://books.goo...

Here's the aerial of the above location, with my interurban map overlaid: http://goo.gl/maps/nyHnE Here's the Pennville site: http://goo.gl/maps/X46fD It was unique because the interurban originally used the existing culvert to avoid crossing the PRR at grade.

Re: Wheredis 3/15/2013

It was an interurban underpass, west of Garrett. It utilized an existing railroad bridge over the creek, so it was far cheaper than building an overpass, new underpass, or at grade crossing. It had major flooding problems of course. Craig can add more info I'm sure. This was done in at least a coupl...

Re: Where Diz ? 12/1/2012

I think there's a big factory expansion going on in Wabash, so I'm going to take a stab and say that's it's along the NS Wabash line in/near Wabash.

Great catch. I've wanted to try to get something on that bridge too, but I don't think the local runs whenever I'm in Ft Wayne.
