• Caption: On May 26, 2006 I decided to make a side trip to Connersville, IN on my way home from school to see if anything was happening on the Whitewater Valley RR. Nothing was happening there, but on the way I found this amusing sign in Milton, IN. Nickel Plate Road was the nickname of the New York, Chicago & St, Louis RR. Although I didn't travel the road to find out for certain, I'm pretty sure it crosses over Indiana Hi-Rail Corporation's former Nickel Plate line.
