I&O Brookville Subdivision

The Brookville sub-division is the original property of the Indiana & Ohio.  Purchased in 1978, it sees regular traffic from its primary customer in Brookville, Owens-Corning.  The railroad was never a busy mainline and always had one foot in the grave being subjected to regular flooding by the Whitewater River.  Today, the railroad is periodically washed out by the river in places.   Once the New York Central Railroads Whitewater Division, it ran from Valley Junction to New Castle, Indiana.  Today, all of the railroad is intact, except for a short segment between Brookville and Metamora.  From Metamora to Connersville, the line is operated by the Whitewater Valley Scenic Railroad.  North of Connersville to New Castle, it is operated by the Connersville & New Castle RR.  I&O usually operates five days per week, depending on traffic.  An engine house is located in Brookville, although operations are often based in Valley Junction.  The entire Brookville sub is designated as "FRA excepted track", thus, is 10mph.
