First printed in 1970, Elmer Sulzer's study of the abandoned railroads of Indiana quickly proved itself invaluable to both the serious student of railroading and the railroad ""buff."" In conjunction with Ghost Railroads of Kentucky (1967) and Ghost Railroads of Tennessee (1975), this volume details the history of railroad closings and their impact on the railroad traffic running from the industrial North and East to the agricultural South and West. Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee provided the essential route for much of the nation's rail traffic.

This is a Great book about the abandoned railroads of Indiana. It is a little out of date as the information ends at 1970 when it was first printed. Still, well worth the money.
