Erie Railroad crossed State Road 5

On its journey westward across Huntington County, the former Erie Lackawanna Railroad once crossed State Road 5 at grade. The crossing is just north of Huntington. The photo shows a more visible remnant of the crossing just west of the road. You have to slow down when driving to even notice a slight rise in the road where the railroad tracks used to be. The line was abandoned by the early 1980s.

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.
