The last on-street stop on the last passenger interurban in the United States

A westbound train pulls away from 11th St station

11th St in Michigan City in 1979 or thereabouts; trains still stop there 38 years later despite the CSS&SB’s heirs grumbling about wanting to abandon the street trackage in favor of curbside running.

(When I was in college, I spent as much time as I could travelling down to Chicago to ride the CSS&SB, so I’m not exactly sure which year I got off at 11th St and walked out to the shops to catch a return train.)
