The wife and I were enjoying a day on my Fall Break at Falls Park in Pendleton when we spotted the following rolling on through:

If I counted right, he had 117 Racks. No a bad train. And to think that I missed that on the Louisville and Indiana Railroad. Nice Video. Thanks for sharing it.

You were about 2 minutes from my house!  If you return to visit, try to find the painted sign for the "IU Traction Co Freight Room" downtown--it's fun!

Where is it located - or is that the secret in the hunt?

IT's across the street from the new mural on the building at the NE corner of state (SR38) and Pendleton Ave.  IT's faded underneath some other paint, but still there.  I'm told (but have no proof) that the wooden overhanging bay window in the second story of the building was an operator's bay for the IUTC, which ran up the middle of the street back in the day.
