Traces of Big Four Railroad bridge

Shown is part of the concrete support structure remaining from an old Big Four Railroad bridge across Rock Run Creek in Goshen. It is located near the State Road 15 overpass and by a bicycle/jogging trail. Old plat maps show the Big Four Railroad (later known as New York Central) had a branch line servicing what was then an industrial area. Nearby you can still also clearly see where the railroad bed was located.

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.
