I found a Web site about the Indiana limestone industry that I was not familiar with.  It's covers a lot of history and includes photos and postcards.  The URL is:

Stone Traffic (on the Monon) was the Title of an article on pages10-15 of The Hoosier line V 9 No 3 in 1991. Also, the Tour Guidebook for the 1996 Society Convention Bloomington to Orleans plus the Smithville Line Clear Creek to Harrodsburg which has schematic track plans for the various stations between McDoel and Bedford.(and also the French Lick Branch)
