Very visible Erie Railroad remnant

Those who like to trace abandoned railroad lines will confirm usually the only remnants found are perhaps old spikes, railroad ties, electric insulators, traces of the railroad bed, etc. But not often is an entire large structure left standing such as this interlocking signal tower for the former Erie Lackawanna Railroad. It stands east of State Road 15 in northern Wabash County in a rural area. The railroad line was abandoned probably more than 30 years ago.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
