Vincennes Railfanning
« on: January 15, 2016, 12:58:30 PM »
I've found a couple good spots for railfanning in Vincennes. One is in the Lowe's parking lot behind the store. It's very close to a crossing. Also, the parking lot next to the Dollar General on 8th St. I'm in Vincennes fairly often these days and would like to know of other good spots.

Just pull off of 6th street near where the C&EI crosses. You can see the SB signal for southbound trains and still hear the northbounds blowing for Hart and all the alley crossings.

It sure isn't the same since the Frostop is gone.
If in doubt, Notch it out!

Thanks! I'm in Vincennes pretty often these days and probably will be even more so in the near future. I'll check it out. Yea, too bad the Frostop isn't there anymore. I went to VU and there's several places I used to hang out that aren't there anymore.
