Walnut Ave grade.

Walnut Ave grade.

It might not look like much but to the right of the metal shed housing the grade crossing protection equipment for Walnut Avenue is a gate across the former Indiana Northern shortline. Until a track consolidation project by NS circa 2006 this track was still visible outside the gate. According to Google Maps the Indiana Northern tracks are still there past the gate and almost all the way to Sample Street. The Indiana Northern was owned by Oliver Chilled Plow for in-house switching on the north side of Sample Street. It also served other industries like the Wilson Brothers Shirt Company. The NJI&I eventually acquired the Indiana Northern. Another surviving bit of Indiana Northern tracks are in the former Wilson Brothers Shirt Company complex which was a customer.
