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 was an Erie Railroad branch from Marion to Dayton. It split off the Erie's New York to Chicago main line in Marion and came south to Dayton. They had trackage rights on the B&O from Dayton to Cincinnati.

I may be wrong but I think it was abandoned at the start of Conrail in 1976. South of Urbana to Glen Echo is part of the Simon Kenton Rail-Trail. In Urbana, the old Erie freight house is still standing but does not seem to be in use for anything. There is only a small stretch of track from this line in use in Urbana and it serves the grain elevator.
