Wherezitat? [Solved]
« on: December 20, 2018, 08:30:20 PM »
Today, this is the end of the line, but there used to be a lot more to me.  Who am I, and where am I?

Hillsdale on the old B&O?

Now part of the Decatur and Eastern Illinois railroad.

I agree. Photo is looking east and the CSX CE&D sub is what the B&O crossed. The satellite dish is for PTC so photo is no more than a few years old.  Backhoe may be for work on a bridge just to the south,  WRO siding is north and is where loaded grain trains off the Decatur sub are taken and power ran around to go south. Empties that come from the south use WRO to run power around and go west.  Same thing for ethanol trains that use to come off the sub but haven't ran in a year or more.

Yes, Wema and CSX2605, it is Hillsdale!

Almost every year, we do a couple "Between Thanksgiving and Christmas Sanity Days" at Turkey Run Inn.  While we were out there, we drove up the famed Newport Hill and had lunch in Clinton.  We stopped at Hillsdale on the way to Rockville.  BTW, I believe the Christmas tree on the square in Rockville may be the most beautiful town tree in Indiana.  On the way home, we stopped at our favorite Indiana antiques store: Cabbages and Kings in Crawfordsville and had lunch at Allen's Country Kitchen.  It was a much-needed break!

The Newport hill is a cool place, especially on the first weekend in October!
