That would be from the GR&I, but I'll give someone else a chance.

GR&I over Rahdert ditch.
Just N. of Dupont Rd. in Allen Co. ,In.
S. of Dupont and W. off Lima Rd. is Billy Drive.
Billy Drive was named by the late "Bill" Meyers.
He was a fine P.R.R. engineman and BLF&E officer.

A usefull tool: http://www.acimap.us/website/allenco/gisportal.php

Thanks

A really bad place for normal picture games, middle of the section and surrounded by private property.

I've thought about getting a Ghillie Suit to take some photos,
especially in the North-West quadrant at Hugo. But , there are
the neighborhood dogs.

What is it you are trying to get at hugo?

The west of the NCD south of Nuttman is just a scrub field, no dogs. Maybe you could get there that way?

I found it on the map, had a duplicate of your second post without the pins ready to post, but thought I wouldn't end it right away.

Your description told everyone where to look. If others want to find it for themselves they just do not scroll down. I already knew that you could enter the coods in Google Earth and 'fly' right to it. It is up to the individual how they want to play, however I would hope that those who 'fly' to the spot would keep quiet so the others could do it their way.

There are plenty of places to look for this way, I do not want to take over this thread. at first I thought no posts for a week, some though want to 'win' by being the first. I am looking for more pictures even though I am seldom familiar enough with most area to have a chance. I agree with Chris, seeing some of these places warms the heart and there are too many places you can not get a 'Street View' of. I would like to get more of these that do not fit Picture Games because they can not be seen from a public place.

I will try to keep more coming if others like this format, but I do not want to be the only one posting. Just want to add to the fun in a way I can. Some have said they enjoy it, others may prefer the original. This just seemed a way many could play their own way and might even get in a few like this that can not be done the original way.

Thank everyone for playing. Now I need to find another place that can not be seen from a public place. Post when you find it and those who still want to find it for themselves can still do so.
