I think it is the trestle just south of Tipton. The one north of Cicero crossing Morse I just don't see that shot happening without a lot of effort.

CIND 2254, while it's technically correct, that's not quite the correct answer.

Inprinter, no, but good guess.


HINT:  There are only three other bridges like this (on the line) besides the two mentioned by Inprinter.

Can I give a small hint or guess? I have a feeling I know this one.

Hold up on that answer, this one is really bugging me. One more day before answering.

Well, here's a little hint...

The train is the ITM Polar Bear Express, which runs from the depot in Fishers to the museum in Noblesville.

Then, with hints given, it has to be the trestle along side Alisonville Rd. where I have it marked in Red.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner!  I wouldn't waste my time back there in the summer though.  Pretty well disguised though, huh?

Ahah! Seems like a good "Where is it" though.

Yes, very well disguised. I sat on the west end of the St. Paul trestle one Friday evening in mid-summer a couple of years ago waiting on the CIND. Wanted some photos of them crossing the trestle.  It was hot and humid and the mosquitos were about the size of buzzards. Took me a week to recover. I've ridden the Pizza train but never anything going south from the museum. Just couldn't think about any trestles other than north until the hint was dropped. Some days you just can't seem to think out of the box. That is a really nice shot and you have a good eye for framing.
