This park features several crossbucks and one signal, as well as some
neat signs. There is also a miniature scale railroad running in a
loop around the park.
|This crossbuck and signal are at the east end of the city. Front view facing south.

|The lone signal in the park. This has 2 pairs of 8"x20" US&S incandescents and a marbled black 3 tracks sign.|
|A very odd way to make a crossing grade.

|An N&W caboose
resides here as well, and a pair of crossbucks sit on each side of
it. Here's the north side one with a wrongly installed, Harmon
font, marble eyed crossbuck. Can you get more special than that?|
|Here's the south side one which is a much more standard type of crossbuck.|
|Another view of the miniature track.|
|These old searchlights are on the neighboring TP&W mainline, but are turned away.|
|Closer view of the old EB signal. They protected the now gone diamond with the former N&W line from Chicago to Decatur.||The old N&W depot, which has been beautifully restore. There is also an old turntable behind the depot.|
