Looking west and east on the FW&J in Polk St. on Ft. Wayne's west side, sometime near 1960.

Interesting that it didn't look that much different when the tore it up decades later. If Headwater junction happens and it gets put back in, it will probably look better than it EVER did when it was an actual railroad.

If you look at Google at the street, it doesn't really look a whole lot different now.

Back when they ripped this out I was at Applied Metals in Fort Wayne where Polk & St Marys intersect and mp 2 was laying on the ground.. I gave it a good home still attached to the post that it was mounted to.. shady neighborhood !
