Someday

The plan was to hang out in Sullivan, Indiana, between catching trains on the Indiana Rail Road.

I’d never been to Sullivan but had seen photographs of the former Chicago & Eastern Illinois coaling tower that straddles the tracks of the CSX CE&D Subdivision.

So there it was a short distance from a public grade crossing. The prospect of catching a southbound coming through that coaling tower had me excited.

Alas, it was not to be. A maintenance of way window had the line shut down north of town. Trains were not expected to run again until the evening.

So although I walked away empty handed this time, you can be certain I’ll be back.

It reminded me of my first visit to the former Bessemer & Lake Erie in Conneaut that also ended with nothing. But I kept going back and was able get some good images.
