Sanborn to Vincennes
— User Comments —
The line which originated at Indianapolis was known as the Vincennes & Indianapolis. The tracks ran from the downtown area, just off of Union Station to Vincennes. Penn Central continued to utilize the line until 1980-81, terminating at Niblack Blvd. On the east side of the railroad, tracks have been pulled up from downtown to the Mars Hill area. Abandonment included Vincennes east to Bruceville; Bruceville to Bicknell (which included 4 tracks through the town; Bicknell to Sandborn. Indiana & Southern holds the current line.
About four years ago, Duke Energy rebuilt the line from Sanborn to Edwardsport for their new power plant
