Wheatfield to South Bend
— User Comments —
I believe this railroad was once owned by Pennsylvania railroad. It runs adjacent to our property line in Lakeville.
Not Pennsylvania heritage, but New York Central Railroad for this line. This is the Kankakee Belt, or 3 "I" line, from it's former owner the Indiana, Illinois & Iowa Railroad, later acquired by NYC. Your property in Lakeville is ex-PRR and ran from South Bend to Terre Haute via Logansport, known as the Vandalia line covered on another abandoned rail page.
Amber, I almost forgot to mention there is an abandoned East-West line on Lakeville's North side that was of Wabash Railroad heritage also. Hope that helps pin down which line ran beside your property.
