Map submitted by Mike Fromholt.

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This railroad was/is originality called the Grand Rapids-Indianapolis railroad connecting those two cities. Part of it was used for the Freedom Train in 1976 when it rolled into Fort Wayne.
