This railroad line ran between LaGrange, IN and Columbia, OH, though the towns of Mongo, Orland and Angola. This portion of the line was abandoned by the 1920s.

Hi,

I got a cement land line marker from a friend this spring. It has the letters L.S.M.S. stacked on top of each other.(lake Shore & Michigan Southern). On the other side it has the letters St. J. V. T. Co. land line stacked on top of each other. I'm interested in knowing where this line ran through in Northern In.(Gary-Goshen?) What did these letters stand for? (St. Joe Valley Railroad?)

This line at one time had planned to join the Pioneer & Fayette railroad at Columbia, Ohio. There was grade work done from Pioneer, Ohio, where the P&F terminated, on to Columbia, for the joining of the two lines, but never had and track laid to finish it.
