East Washington St, INDY

The rails that were visible at State and Washington may be gone now. The City has begun resurfacing Washington St (FINALLY!) and the rails were too close to the surface to grind the surrounding road. They were visible Monday, but gone yesterday.

Not this time. Back several summers ago, they did some sewer work and tore up a good chunk of the middle lanes of Washington St. The contractor was surprised when the track hoe started bringing up rotten ties and rusted rail.

A few years ago I happened by E Washington and Emerson as they were doing repaving. I was surprised to see rails in the street west of Emerson. It did not look like they were being removed, but I can't be sure.
There a fine line between a 'hobby' and a 'mental illness'.
