This day in Railroad History

July 30, 1971
The Monon Railroad merged into the Louisville & Nashville Railroad. Built as the Chicago, Indianapolis & Louisville Railroad, opened its 300-miles from Lake Michigan south to the Ohio River in 1853. In 1946, John W. Barriger III became president of the Monon, changed its operations, built new passenger cars, purchased new diesel F-3's for passenger and mainline freight service, and made the Monon a modern, efficient, and competitive railroad. The Monon Railroad was the first class "A" railroad to become fully dieselized. It operated entirely within the state of Indiana, having only a few miles of out-state trackage rights to connect it to its two major terminals - Chicago and Louisville, Kentucky.
