Lafayette, Indiana is a long-time railroad hot spot. Your visit to Lafayette will include: A constant parade of trains on Norfolk Southern’s former Wabash mainline, a stand of operating semaphores on CSX’s old Monon mainline, Alco’s on the KB&S, as well as an overview of railroading in the area. There is a great variety of railroading in Lafayette, and if you like contemporary action, you’ll see lots of it in this fine program.
Lafayette used to feature mainline street running – travel back in time to see CSX trains on the old Monon main on 5th street through downtown Lafayette! See the relocated Big Four Depot (part of the effort to get the tracks out of the street) and action on the shortline KB&S. A bonus is footage aboard a NYC passenger train in the 1950s.
