Indiana Rail Museum Leases 5 Miles of Track

Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum will continue to lease five miles of track between North Judson and English Lake in Indiana.

The North Judson-based museum signed the agreement with Chesapeake & Indiana Railroad, which operates freight service over the former Chesapeake & Ohio route.

C&I owner Midwest & Bluegrass Rail purchased the line last year from the Town of North Judson although it had operated over the route for several years.

The contract gives the museum greater flexibility in using the track by simplifying operational protocols.

The museum will be responsible for track maintenance on the leased section, while the short line will retain the right to serve freight customers.
