Hiawatha Yard Information
« 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.
