SJSB&S track east view

SJSB&S track east view

This view looks east along the former SJSB&S track in the NS era where it crosses Prairie Avenue, just north of Indiana Avenue. This track will soon curve south to reach what is left of the former PRR Vandalia Line to where it is severed a mile away at the Hanson Cold Storage facility. NS recently applied to abandon this track east of this point due to no freight traffic over it for at least two years. To the north and parallel to this track ran the NJI&I which serviced Studebaker and later Allied Stamping that took over much of the Studebaker plant until Allied went under in 1999.
