Remarks & Notes 
Indiana Railroad's daily Senate Ave Yard (Indianapolis) to Hiawatha Yard (Jasonville) road freight SAHW-22 soars over the south bank of Lake Lemon atop the Shuffle Creek Trestle on its westward journey toward Switz City, where a crew change will occur. Built in the year 1906, prior the lake's existence, this massive 112-year old deck plate girder bridge stretches 980 ft in length and nearly 80 ft tall at its highest point. Lake Lemon was later constructed in 1953 to provide the near expanding city of Bloomington with a drinking water reservoir and natural resource venue. The lake is Indiana's 11th largest taking up 1,650 acres of land with 24 miles of shoreline and an maintaining an average depth of nearly 10 ft. This trestle played scene to the near death of two female trespassers back in July of 2014 when they narrowly escaped being struck by westbound coal train after being forced to lie down between the rails. A trip back here again when the greenery returns to the tress will certainly be in order!
