Built before 1945 and once a Chicago & Eastern Illinois mainline, the photographer catches the present-day CSX mainline in March of 2008, already in the process of being dismantled. Photo by Jeremy Green, March 2008.

I believe this to be the former CE&I, L&N, CSX looking south/west toward Henning at the crossing of country road E.3200 North Road. It was never a mainline. I believe it only to be an access route to the power plant, several grain silos and access for the coal mines near Broadland.

I hiked the line from Rossville to Henning often as a kid.
