I'll bet the Wells County Historical Society has other photos which would help pinpoint the location.

I would hazard a guess that it's right in Bluffton and that is the LE&W main in the foreground. I love those old pictures with crowds of the public looking over the wreck. There's several bicycles lying in the grass. Might that be shared to the Clover Leaf Facebook page?
