The guestbook was disabled in early 2003 to stop the spam that was taking it over. It is included here for informational purposes.

My grandfather, Tom Maley, was an engr on the Peoria & Eastern Div of the NYC from before 1890 until 1930. Would be interested in any pictures of trainmen including my grandpa of the P & E.

Hi there! I spent 9 years driving spikes and putting on anchors until welded rail turned my into a firefighter. I'm trying to find out when the Big 4 cut their roadbed through a cemetery in Burnett, IN. My sister and brother-in-law own a farm south of the now CSX east/west double main. I lost quite a lot of weight during the summer cleaning out some mudholes there. Burnett is about 10 miles east of Terre Haute, IN.

Since this is only my 2nd train site, it seems to be a very good one! I am trying to find information on my great-grandpa, Jonas Ralph Craig or Joseph Craig, who had supposedly worked for the Monon Railroad (Indianapolis-Louisville) in the early 1900's. My great-grandfather was a brakeman for the railroad and it is rumored that his body was severed by a train. I believe I have his death narrowed down to 1917-1921. If anyone has any information, please e-mail me @smmoore@anderson.edu. The only piece of information that I have regarding my g-grandpa is his marriage license. Thank you for any help or assistance.

Great web-site! The input from individuals is very interesting, differing views of how the railroads affected there lives. The various photos from around the state also provide good information, it's too bad we're losing so many railroads and historical buildings at an alarming rate.

Greatb site as I love Indiana and the rails. Some of you may be interested in videos I sell at rail shows, not elaborate, but interesting. They are $15 for 1 and all 3 at $10 each (people may copy and trade them, this is of no concern) as well. They may be ordered direct from me at Dale Pierce, 521 Fair, NW Rear, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663. Railroads of Indiana (old stations, railroad action, yards, etc, mainly around Ft. Wayne area) 2. Railroads of the midwest (museums, yards, model trains, Indiana, Ohio area), and Shadows of the B&O with loadfs of action and displays. I am also going to start a webpage shortly and will log back on, as I would like to have you linked with me when this happens. People will be invited to do articles, send photos or buy, sell and trade material. Look for this later in summer.)

Good site, as a life long railfan who realized a dream by becoming a conductor for the Norfolk Southern(note it is Norfolk Southern,NOT Norfolk & Southern) I have to say that it is very refreshing to find something on the railroads of the state of Indiana instead of the state of California or Arizona. Keep up the good work.

Excellent site. It's cool that everybody answers each others questions with dignity and purpose. Keep up the good work. I enjoy watching the CSX mainline through downtown, usually behind Conseco Fieldhouse, but I will without a doubt check out some of the other hotspots that you people have shared. Thanks and be careful. As majestic as trains are, and regardless of how many years you've enjoyed them, the tracks are no place to get comfortable.

Perhaps the best kept little secret viewing site for rail- fans in Indiana - Princeton, Indiana. NS and CSX (Southern and C&EI) run parallel through the town from northwest to southeast before splitting in a most unusual way. A vacant lot at the south end offers wide view of both lines - if I win the lottery I'll buy the lot and establish a railfan park!!!

I also have many rr videos I produce and sell cheaply at train shows, at the $15 to $10 range, not exactly Pentex qualitiy, but interesting, I think, including museums, static displays, sations, etc, includes B&o, NYC, PRR, NP, Great Northern, Erie, Burlington, Conrail, N&S, N&W, and more. I have some Indiana related materials. D. Pierce, 521 Fair-NW Rear, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

My Great Grandfather Edward S. Coyle was a telegrapher in Vandalia and at Dennison. I have a great Aunt and a great uncle both born at the RR Sta at Vandalia (1886/1888) Edward was a one armed telegrapher, he lost his right arm in a boyhood accident. His son Harry went on to work for AT&T in the first radio tower in So. San Francisco. His other son Curtis St. Elmo Coyle was a brakeman for the IL Central after WW1 and died in 1927 after falling under a train. If anyone has any additional info on these three guys I would greatly appreciate it. Check your archives! Thanking you in advance, Timothy St.Elmo Coyle

I'm really sad to see the end of Conrail! I only wish that the traffic on the old Chicago-Boston mainline will one day return to where it was just before the merger. But only time will tell. Most of the Norfolk Southern, ex-Conrail employees are excited about working for a new company, and will become a NS railfan, because NS is part of the old Wabash Railroad. I only hope that this new companies will help take-off the highways most trucks which do nothing but tearup our highways, with their overweight loads!

I really miss the noise of the trains for I was always around Gibson yards on Saturday mornings. I hope that the railroad will always be around for our grandchildren and their grandchildren to enjoy. s

I've very much enjoyed visiting the Monon sites. However, it strikes me that most of your visitors are interested primarily in the railroad's rolling equipment, its hardware, its stations, and its routes. I think it would be worthwhile to collect and publish all available archival material on the CI&L/Monon employees. My great-great grandfather was an engineer on the Monon and I keep hoping someone will have a picture with him next to his locomotive. But, alas, no one ever mentions the names of the people in the photos you publish. I'd certainly like to hear more about the people who made this railroad work; engineers, conductors, yard workers, ticket agents, and the like. This was a railroad of people, and I think we should get their names on the record. Thanks.

For years, I've followed the history of Indiana's railroads. This is fantastic! I hope that you can keep this site going, and that more and more people help contribute to keeping the spirit of Hoosier railroading alive.

I'm really happy you started this. Being primarily a Monon fan I'm always looking for as much information on it as I can but it's good to have information on other Indiana railrods all at one site.
