PC: Re: Templeton, IN

Ed and list members,

I took a few shots at Templeton back in 1976.  Assuming I still have my
directions straight after nearly 25 years, the single NKP / N&W track ran on
the west side of the station the station, while the two NYC / PC tracks were
on the east side.  There was no tower (at least in 1976), and a sign below
the signal at the point where the PC joined the N&W read "BEGIN AUTOMATIC

I'll ask George Elwood to scan the 4 negatives and put them on his site at
http://www.dnaco.net/~gelwood/ .  I'll post another message to the list when
they're up.
