New Unionville & Western Railroad
Scale Structures along the line
Fluck Mill Stone Company was a stone mill south west of Bloomington, Indiana near the current Victor Oolitic Stone Company. This mill is sponsored by Bill Lesburg and Charles Robbins. Bill is a retired custom kitchen and bath remodeler. Charles is semi retired from Duke Energy. Both Bill and Charles are steam locomotive owners. The unique aspect of this industry is that we are going to include a short steaming bay pit in front of the train doors so they can steam up there locomotives just outside of the container. We are going to try to hide the pit from view so the industry will still retain the cut stone mill look.
May 2011 and a lot of track work later Fluck Mill is now operatioinal and occupied by Bill Lesburg and Charles Robbins and their steam locomotives and trains.
A great place for a photo and the steaming bays do not show
in the picture. Below notice the MONON Railroad type
semaphore in the background on the main line. The tunnel block is now protected by operating semaphores built by Bill Lesburg.
MONON 561 sits idle at Fluck Mill on a slow day.
Jeffersonville, Madison & Indianapolis 20 cools down on the steaming bay at the end of a work day.
