I think we have a great program lined up for this monthís Railfans of Indianapolis meeting Saturday, May 12, at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 2560 Villa Ave. Bill Shapotkin, a third-generation railroader, will present a program on the Nickel Plateís Indianapolis-Michigan City line. Retired after many years on Metra, Chicago ís commuter rail agency, Bill also authored the book Faster Than the Limiteds: The Story of the Chicago - New York Electric Air Line Railroad and Its Transformation into Gary Railways. Bill will take us north on the IMC line to Michigan City. After spending some time in Michigan City, we come back to Indianapolis via the Monon. Our meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. but we start to gather around 7. Visitors and guests are always welcome at our meetings.
