This is the 4th district of the Wabash. There is a brand new book by Victor Baird called. Railroading on the Wabash 4th District. This is an amazing history of this line and well worth the cost. I just purchased my copy and highly recommend this. You will enjoy the history of the Stroh branch.
I too have just purchased this fine book and I highly recommend it. Great coverage. If you have any questions after you read this book YOU ASK TOO MANY QUESTIONS!
Currently there are plans in the very early, preliminary stages to convert the roadbed to a bike trail between Wolcottville, IN and Millersburg, IN. Some parcels of land will need to be repurchased from adjacent land owners since a few of them bought the easement from the railroad after it was abandoned.
This is yet still another abandonment that's a darn shame. With so much congestion nowadays on Norfolk Southern's mainline, this line could've been used as a nice "pop-off valve" for slow freights had it survived.
