B&O from Mitchell to French Lick
« on: June 21, 2018, 04:53:57 PM »
I looked at a 1937 B&O System Map and it showed a B&O line from Mitchell through Orleans to French Lick Springs. My 1951 B&O map does not have this line on it. The B&O must have had an arrangement with the Monon for passenger service off of their Cincinnati to Saint Louis trains to French Lick around 1937.

Right you are...somewhere about that time, there may have even been through cars from the B&O to French Lick, switched onto the branch local at Mitchell.
