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.
