Right Down the Street

Perhaps one of the lesser known examples of railroad street running is in Elwood, Indiana, where the Frankfort District of Norfolk Southern runs down the middle of C Street for four blocks.

This is former Nickel Plate Road (Lake Erie & Western) territory and rail traffic is light. You can sit for hours here and not see a train.

My first visit to Elwood, located in central Indiana about 43 miles north of Indianapolis, didn’t net any trains in the street but I did catch an NS hi-railer headed westbound as seen above.
