General Chatroom / Re: Bill Raia Photos of Stateline Tower

Amazing...

I always wondered - was State Line staffed by a single operator or did they have a helper on some shifts? It seems like trying to keep 100+ levers set up for constant traffic would take more than one person...not to mention the need for a maintainer to be on call in the (seemingly likely) event that the levers and pushrods became stuck or frozen.

Inquiring minds...

2017 Convention / Hiawatha Yard Information
« Last post by Ron Simunic on September 21, 2017, 04:33:02 PM »
From Austin Milton, INRD’s Road Foreman of Engines-

I will have signs for parking at the Locomotive Maintenance Facility so you can identify it easily.

After the tour of the LMF we can do a walking tour of the Hiawatha yard area.  Hiawatha yard is the old Milwaukee Road “Latta Yard”.   From there it may be a good idea if we are able to do it, to go down the road a few miles and check out the site of the old “Midland yard” on the old Monon I&L branch.  It is now CP Midland where the INRD Chicago Sub and Midland Sub diverge and the site of Finley Siding.

2017 Convention / Early Arrivals in Salem

Conventioneers, it appears many of you will be arriving Thursday.  This is good news!  I plan to have a table set up Thursday afternoon with your registration packets and it will remain there until Friday during social hour.  For those going to Jasonville, I plan to have list for you to contact one another for car pooling.  I will have new Indiana maps also on the table.  For those that have not chosen to go to Jasonville, I will have other information in the packet of things to do in the area.  Cecil should be at the depot for other questions i.e.. places to eat, things to do.

Looks like they are switching the interchange track with the Wabash.  Nice shot!

Ya, and he has a new spot too.  See the site at:

Did not have a chance to get by there on my recent trip to Colorado, but maybe next time.  I'm looking forward to seeing it.
