Current/Former CN Facility in Edwardsburg?

Unread postby NSSD70ACe » Mon Dec 10, 2018 5:07 pm

I was doing a Google Maps "survey" of the South Bend Subdivision when I came across a small CN facility in Edwardsburg. It's basically a one or two room building, a signal bungalow, some spare crossing gates, and a flatcar with a load I can't determine back in the trees. Does anyone know what this place is?

If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

It was the most recent depot. Now it is an MoW building. The flat had MoW “junk” and a crane clamshell bucket when it was still there.

I went by a few weeks ago and didn’t see it. It is possible it is there and I just missed it

The flat is gone and if you look on the other side of the street, you notice the concrete barriers sitting there? One has been moved and is now on the tracks, next to the derail, blocking anything from going across the road to get to the building. Also, its a MOW shanty.
