Beech Grove, Indiana

  
  
I took a tour of the Amtrak Beech Grove Shops on a cold day in Spring 2001.  Beech Grove is just south of Indianapolis, Indiana.
  
Although Amtrak currently runs the Beech Grove Shops, it has a long history going back to the early 1900's and was used as a repair facility by several other railroad companies including the Big Four, New York Central, and Penn Central.  Be sure to check out some of the historical photos related to Beech Grove and the shops at the Indiana Historical Society site.

Here's a P32-8, #508

Here I am in front of P-42 engine #60.  I had met this engine before, although I didn't know it when this picture was taken.  This engine took me on my first train trip (the Zephyr), although it had a different paint job in '99.
