Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

The actual end of the FW&J was at the PRR crossing at Junction. Remember the track continued south across the NKP at West Wayne, past Paula's Seafood at main Street, crossing the GR&I at Park. I believe NYC had trackage rignts to Hugo but that was NKP owned track. Likewise, I believe NKP had trackag...

Re: Comment and question

We stopped having those several years ago for three main reasons. First the attendance kept dropping. The first year was the highest and they dwindled more and more each year.

Re: Pennsylvania Railroad

Interesting thing about the Detroit Arrow. it was Pennsy from Chicago to Fort Wayne and Wabash from Fort Wayne to Detroit, changing engines and railroads in Fort Wayne. Even with that, it was the fastest route between the two terminal cities.

Re: January 20 - Junctions

"I remember enjoying one of your interurban presentations that you had at the Dupont library branch. IIRC, there were a couple of people there who could remember the interurbans, a group that nearly disappeared by now, I imagine." Charlie Willer did one on the Kingsland Wreck once where we had the d...

Re: Buck Lake Ranch Railroad

Our family went there a few times c. 1960 and I remember seeing tracks but no trains. I'm not sure if it was operating at the time.

Re: Fort wayne maps 1898

Bob, I think you are right. When I was in high school (69-71) there was an auto junk yard on the west side of the LE&FtW on the north side of Covington Road (Carter's?). I recall the track was still in place but was overgrown.

Re: Triple Crown Yard

I see trains regularly on the Belt from my place of employment. They appear to be NS and are usually quite long with multiple unit power on the point.

Re: Changes in Northeast Indiana in or about 1918

Although not 1918, the CB&C stopped the year before in 1917, which fits the topic "in or about 1918".

Last month, the Tri-State Locomotive Club held it's September meet in Andrews, Indiana. Larry Lett filmed some video of the meet and has posted it on YouTube. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkgavaShn2Q
