Troy to Collinsville

The Troy Branch

Point of Interest

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 line does not end at the NS at Troy. This is the CSXT, former Conrail, former PC, former PRR Vandalia line. You can see the R-O-W where it splits off the now main line. I run on the main line from Avon, to St. Louis Roselake Yard. The Spilt is just west of Triad Road about 700 feet west.
