I can only say that I know who's bike it was as well.
Anyways here is the first hint: One railroad came from the east and the other came from the south, but both ended up going north.

Too far south. LJ usually posts trivia from the northern third of Indiana. I'm guessing somewhere in Kokomo or Marion.

True, most my photos are posted from the Northern two thirds of Indiana. I rarely get south of Indianapolis for train photos, unless I am riding with someone else.

Hint number two: I may be west of U.S Hwy. 31 and North of U. S. Hwy. 24.

How about the PRR Columbus/Richmond to Chicago main line and the PRR I&F at VAN, on the West side of Logansport, the line going North being the Eel River Railroad (former PRR South Bend Branch)?
Cheers, Al

Wild guess here, Delong IN.  Erie and the old South Bend Branch of the PRR.  Do not know the industry that was served. Am I close?

 TP&W and Monon. TP&W was owned by the ATSF at one time.

Sorry santa fe warbonnet, not even remotely close in some respect. CIOR on the other hand is starting to warm up. As for the rest of you, the names you all are giving me are warm, but not the right combination of railroads. So keep trying!!! As I said before in one of my hints, I may have posted another photo on another thread in the bull session recently. That will give you a truly good hint.

Rand McNally would've been the Monon and MoPac.... there's your Native American and Diamonds.
