Sorry, Geoff. I think that I must have put the wrong location on the map because the street view you added was on the still-in-use bridge over Lattas directly off IN67 at Switz City. This bridge is actually parallel to CR250N just off IN231 West of Bloomfield. Map has been fixed. There is no street view

I am certainly no expert on RR items, so Please anyone, any info. This looks to me like the same line that runs from Johnstown Bridge to, perhaps, the abandoned White River trestle East of Newberry. Of course I may be full of crapola. What say you?
