Hoosier Railroad Ghosts
My purpose in these pages is to portray forgotten and surprising parts of railroad history. I won't attempt to document every piece of old or abandoned railroads, but those particularly unique, unusual, beautiful, or now so far-gone from trains that it is unbelievable trains were ever there.

(Click on the location names to go to pages with photos, maps, and info)


Cartersburg, Hendricks County: THI&E (IRR), Vandalia (PRR). Two bridges and a tunnel.

Danville: THI&E. Half of a bridge and a playground.
