Central Indiana Trip
Lee Yoder also took the April 25, 1959 trip on the Central Indana. At the request of Wade Frasch, Lee dug out the slides that he took and sent me scans.

cameras at that time. (But he does remember using two cameras at later times - rph)
In addition to the C. I. Fan trips as a small lad I remember Ike having Baseball specials originating in Wabash Indiana (mine and Ike's home town) and going to the ball games in Cincinnati, I remember the coaches with the
canvas curtains on the vestibules and the large (to me) steam engines with the elephant ears. I was no more than 10 when I rode two or three of these specials with my Dad and Morris Duffey who was Ike's nephew (Ike had no
