Railroad tracks imbedded in road

Once in a while you can see not only remnants of an abandoned railroad line such as the roadbed, but also the tracks. Shown is a small remaining portion of the old Eel River Railroad line in South Whitley, Whitley County. The tracks are imbedded in Line Street, about a block west of State Road 5. Nearby is a grain elevator and also where the Eel River RR intersected what is now Norfolk Southern’s rail line that is still active. It used to be known as the Nickel Plate Railroad.

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.
