A Tribute To The Erie Western Railroad Co. (ERES)

Posted by Matthew Ginkel
This is a tribute to a railroad few know about. The Erie Western (reporting marks ERES) Railroad was a company that unsucessfully tried to revive the the Indiana section of the Erie Lackawanna Railroad Company during the late 70's after Conrail had excluded it from it's long range plans. Today, hardly any of the EL ROW is still surviving in Indiana. Some of the ROW has been reclaimed by farmers, some turned into bike paths, others have had whole subdivisions built right on top of where the tracks were. I just wish I could have seen it in it's hayday. Thanks for watching. UPCARKNOCKER

    Graham Stokes Thanks for posting this. I enjoyed the photos-bridge and Rock Island coaches especially- read the historical background, and enjoyed the ol Casey Jones music as well. Played it thrice.
