Reminder of Syracuse-Milford Railway

Here’s another trace of the short line and short lived Syracuse-Milford Railway. Tracks were removed nearly 90 years ago but a few traces remain between Syracuse and Milford in Kosciusko County. This one is along Bowser Road, east of County Road 300 East between Syracuse and Milford. Note the rise in the ground. Just to the west is another trace where the railroad crossed a ditch. Part of the concrete abutment for the bridge remains there.

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.

    I grew up on Waubee Lake on the West side. We use to swim out to where they had tracks running from North to South about 75 yards off shore. Ever once in a while, you could find and old railroad spike. Use to have fun at the cement structure at Camelot before it was developed. Thanks for sharing.
