My apologies gentlemen (and ladies)-<p> The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum is located<br>in North Judson, Indiana (northwest corner of<br>the state) at a point where the Erie, the C&O,<br>the Pennsy and the Kankakee Belt Line of the<br>New York Central crossed. The museum is located<br>on the former right of way of the Erie (later<br>Erie-Lackawanna, later still Erie Western and<br>finally Chicago & Indiana) before the track was<br>abandoned and torn up. In 1988, HVRM was looking for a home for its Chesapeake & Ohio 2-8-4 and the old Erie right of way was donated to the mu-<br>seum at that time.<br> Also, a slight update; our GE 95-ton diesel was<br>released from the shop on Saturday 9/4 and will be<br>available to pull caboose trains at the open house<br>on 9/11/99.<br> We would like all of those who can possibly<br>make it for our open house/depot dedication to be<br>our guests; you can't beat the price!!!<br>
