Sept. 20 Excursions to Cross Quincy High Bridge

The Cincinnati Railway Company will operate two public excursions on Sept. 20 from Lima to Quincy on the Indiana & Ohio Railroad.

The highlight of the trips over tracks of the former Detroit, Toledo & Ironton will be crossing the Quincy High Bridge over the Great Miami River.

Trains will depart Lincoln Park in Lima at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The trip sponsor is the Allen County Historical Society, which reports that all tickets for the excursions have been sold.

In a Facebook posting, the Cincinnati Railway group said it is leasing two locomotives from Norfolk Southern for the trips, No. 7136 (a GP60) and No. 3170 (an SD40).

The trains will stop just short of the diamonds with CSX in Quincy.
