Rebuilding a trestle on the C I & S after a flood - Near Carthage, IN March 24, 1913
KSV was abandoned by KSV. You can tell that KSV was abandoned a long time ago because I can't find any land scars or tree lines for it southwest of town nor near Morristown. I suspect that S. Henley Avenue was built on the KSV RoW.
Big Four south of Carthage was abandoned by NYC.
Big Four north of Carthage became the Carthage, Knightstown & Shirley (CKSI) and it used to operate all the way to Anderson. ("I rode the CKS back in I believe the late 80's when the line was still intact to Anderson, but only serviced to Shirley I believe. It wasn't anything fancy and well, a nice little trip." [IndianaRailroads]) Initially, it ran freight and tourist traffic. Then it cut back to Knightstown and was an isolated tourist railroad. But even that was abandoned in 2005. [RYPN]
