    As the story goes, about 10 years ago, this line was up for abandonment, and a wealthy fellow bought it for his son. Now it runs a grain train or two every day. On older maps, it's shown as Norfolk and Western, but modern maps show it as the title implies. N&W bought out the old Wabash line, and of course was absobed into NS later. Yup, them's wood crossin's.

    Where was that taken. I'm assuming in Indiana but some of it looks familiar as it could resemble some elevators in Illinois.

    I must admit that I still like the old wood prairie giants that have been replaced by these more modern type grain handlers. Must have been quite a wind to take that roof off. Now if only my daddy had bought me a railroad like that!:rolleyes:
    Nice photos Jon. Including those satelite photos really helps.
    Sure you could model this too.:D :D :D
