Bridge pilings for Winona Interuban

On its run from Goshen to Peru, the Winona Interurban Railway line crossed Tinkey Creek southwest of Warsaw. Shown are a few wooden pilings for a bridge for the railway that crossed the creek. They can be seen from County Road 200 South between County Road 875 West and Tinkey Road. Passenger service was discontinued in the 1930s for the interurban. Freight service on some portions of the line continued until 1952, but it is believed not on this portion of the line. It is remarkable the pilings are still standing.

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.
