Old interlocking tower in Walkerton

Sometimes the right timing makes a difference. While taking photos of an old railroad interlocking tower on the former B&O line in Walkerton, St. Joseph County, a CSX train came through. CSX, of course, now owns the railway line. Interlocking towers were common before automation and technology made them obsolete. Not many of the buildings still stand, though, making it a treat for rail fans to see one.Former interlocking tower in St. Joseph County


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.
