Remarks & Notes 
Having just entered the former Monon Road (presently, in 1983, L&N) mainline from Chicago on trackage rights, a southbound Terre Haute to Louisville manifest tiptoes along J Street while obeying the traffic signals in downtown Bedford, Indiana on this iconic stretch of street running. Sadly, while this unique mile of trackage hosted its last regular movement in the summer of 2009, the tracks on J Street still remain as of October 2016 - but with the former Monon main having been severed just to the north of this location in 1993, and the former Milwaukee (more recently the SOO Line/CP Latta Subdivision) from Bedford to Crane having been pulled out in favor of a 'rail trail' as of 2010, these now-rusty rails are truly a road to nowhere. So it goes within the realm of what has become a southern Indiana railroad wasteland!
