Here’s another remnant photo of the Winona Interurban Railway, an electric railway once stretching from Goshen to Peru. On that route it came through Miami County, the county where it would eventually end its route. This photo is along State Road 19 in Miami County, just south of the Fulton County line. The railway paralleled SR 19 about where you see the power poles. This does have the appearance, too, of a former railroad right of way. A few weeks ago I posted something about the retaining wall still in place. This photo was taken a few hundred feet south of the retaining wall. The route of the Winona continued to follow SR 19 for a while and then eventually cut off and went through rural areas along county roads. The Winona Interurban Railway stopped carrying passengers in 1934, but continued to carry freight on part of the route until the 1950s. As a reminder, interurban railways were often the victim of poor timing due to the coming of the automobile, the Great Depression and, sometimes quite honestly poor management.
