Richard added the following comment in Bridge Hunter to correct their caption on the above photo:
My picture from 1977 shows an Illinois Central Gulf empty unit coal train traveling south (rather than east). It's returning to the coal fields in western Indiana/eastern Illinois.He also added four more photos.
The Illinois Central was always a north-south railroad, and so this branch from Effingham, Illinois, to Indianapolis, Indiana, (nicknamed the Hi-Dry) gets the same treatment, with Indy being toward the northern end of the branch.
