New agreement made on the Chesapeake and Indiana Railroad
STARKE COUNTY, Ind. -- The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum announced a new agreement with the owners of the Chesapeake and Indiana Railroad that will allow the museum to continue to lease a five-mile section of track between North Judson and English Lake.
This new agreement will simplify operations and communications between HVRM and CKIN while giving the museum increased operating flexibility.
A renewed relationship has been created between the museum and the owners of the railroads with this new deal.
“This not only allows us to continue running our trains, but it really gives us the opportunity to make North Judson a must-see tourist destination. It also shows how important it is to build a positive working relationship with everyone involved. I’m excited to see where things go from here,” said Todd Flanigan, President of the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum.
The museum will take on maintenance for the leased section of the rail line while allowing the owners of the railroad to continue freighting customers through the area.
