Description: This is a common railfan location, also known as  Wellsboro. This is the crossing of the CSX Willard -
Chicago main and the CN Detroit - Chicago main. These are both major lines, and give you two great features: Lots of
trains (50-60 on CSX; 25-30 on CN), and lots of variety (besides CSX and CN, expect almost any foreign power
through here.). The Junction is CSX property, but you will generally not be bothered if you stay by the road.

Approximate # trains per 24 hours: 75

Gregariousness quotient: non existent

Food and Lodging: 11 miles North on US-35 in La Porte, IN
