HOOSIER VALLEY RAILROAD MUSEUM
VISIT SEPTEMBER 27,2008
On a recent trip to Chicago to visit with relatives, I purposely took a side trip to North Judson, Indiana to see the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum.  After checking out the restored depot and gift shop I wandered around the grounds and took the following photos.

Approaching Back Shop Building On return from English Lake trip
In addition to walking the grounds, I rode the train led by ERIE # 310 from North Judson to English Lake and return, a trip lasting about 45 minutes.

The small village of North Judson is located about 80 miles southeast of Chicago and was the intersection of four railroads at one time - Pennsylvania Railroad, Erie Railroad, New York Central Railroad and the Chesapeake and Ohio.  It saw as many as 125 trains each day total from the above lines.
