On May 22, 2017, after 146 years, the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus folded its tent for the last time after a final show at Long Island’s Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and passed into the history books. The next day, the circus’s famous 60-car Red Train operated for the last time; it had been for years one of two, the other being the Blue Train.
Here are a few of the photos of the train I have taken.

On August 22, 1998, CSX and NS exercised their options and took control of Conrail.
On June 1, 1999, they began operating their portions. See the Breakup Of Conrail.
At the end of 1999, the Anderson Herald Bulletin poled it's readership to determine the top 50 People of the Century. Number 6 on the list was Charles L. Henry who coined the word interurban. He was the driving force behind the Union Traction Company which later became a part of the Indiana Railroad moving people, packages and freight over much of Indiana with traction lines. The system was dissolved in 1941, a victim of the automobile and the bus.
Also included in the top 50 was Ike Duffey who owned and operated the packing plant that became Emge Packing Co., owned the semi-pro Anderson Packers basketball team and saved the Central Indiana Railway Co. from extinction.
