and even team tracks
Oh, and of course, more elevators!
Which leads us to Smithson, IN, a town worthy of a thread all it's own!
Well, I'll be dogged, that is the X, right there by the train station. Whooda thunk itad have stop signs?
Another "burg" along the way, and what appears to be a team track like area with a loading ramp
And some tanks on the other end of town
As the journey is near an end, I exit highway 43 to take Canal Road, a shortcut to Lafayette, which is by the tracks, naturally, which departed the highway 20 miles back, in Brookston IN. I spotted a train and stopped to get some pics of hte rollin' stock. This is the same CSX line we've been following.
FMC or FMQ?
Grand Trunk Railroad
Chicago and North Western
My cousin models that line
L&N The Family Line!
Winchester and Western W&W
I'm loading these up because someone in tech forum was asking what roadnames are running on CSX and NS nowadays. I know they are not hte best shots throught he weeds and all.
Our Journey is over when we cross the Mighty Wabash River, for Lafayette is just past it.
There was a headon between to steam engines long ago on this bridge. There were no survivers.
Winding back the clock, this little string of cars was found just west of Monon, at the beginning of the journey. Superman could probably see them in the first photo's I posted here looking west.
Golden West Service
And finally, one Union Pacific
Jon,That track is the way I like my model track to look..
Ya, too bad we can't paint the rust on the top of the railhead. Anyone got sorce on conductive brown paint???
