Hoosier Southern 12/15
« on: December 18, 2018, 12:38:13 PM »
A few of us ventured down to Tell City over the weekend to see the Polar Bear Express train, run by ITM.

1. The venerable GP7 stands by, waiting for passengers at Tell City Depot.
2. HOS 467 passes the mural on the Ohio River flood wall.
3. A few blocks to the north, we again find 467 creeping through 6th Street.
4. The PBX train slips along the bank of the Ohio River as a coal barge passes in the background, nearing Troy.
The gates are going down and the people are starting to frown.

17 down, 3 to go.

Is the ITM running multiple excursions this season?

Seems they're trying to find the most opportune area to settle down after Noblesville.

One out of Kokomo and then this Tell City operation.

How is ITM involved?  I see Scenic Lincoln Way and Polar Bear:
