This small (but heavily built) pony plate girder is a remnant from a long abandoned rail corridor. This line was built as part of the "Shelbyville and Columbus Railroad" in 1853. Later part of the "Jeffersonville Madison and Indianapolis", and "Pennsylvania Railroad" empire. Line connected to "Rushville & Shelbyville RR" which connected to Pennsylvania 'Panhandle' main line at Cambridge City or, after 1910 Dublin, Indiana. It was abandoned in 1977.
