I think the current problems we face with the rail traffic is a product of the lack of vision our city's leaders had decades ago. While it is difficult to predict the future, that's exactly what urban planners and civil engineers have to do when it comes to infrastructure. It's failed us...miserably.

When the original railroads were laid, Terre Haute was a fraction of the size it is now. Even in the 50s the "end" of town on the east side was well east of 25th St., the north "end' was just around Maple Ave. The population was much smaller too. It may be lack of forsight but who would have known where and how large the town grew. In that era the railroads were the lifeline, not only in shipping or transportation but also in employment.

If you're in the north end the trains are usually up to speed & don't take long. If you're on north First street they don't take long.

If you're down in the south end around Margaret-Davis areas where they stop & jockey around the yard it sucks.

If you've lived in this town any time at all you know what to expect. Why wait till the last minute to leave the house?

Get on 70 you dumb shits! That way you can be stuck for hours because some dumb ass trucker fell asleep. And by the way I can tell most of the people making the comments are kinda slow so I will just state facts. Power plants can't run without trains. Just a small plant like SG runs 90 ton a hour. So count the trucks that would be driving in town trying to keep up. By the way it been tried and could be done anyway. Next fact. The town was built around the railroad it was here first so move the town.

You're making fun of people for being slow and then proceed to post some nonsensical, retarded shit like that. All I can say is wow, and not in a good way.

Know your history before you write about it. The village of Terre Haute was platted in 1816. The first rail line in the United States opened in 1830. The Wabash River, The National Road and the Wabash Erie Canal were all here before the railroad.

. Talking more along the lines of the collage and other things built around the tracks. Big difference between a village and a town. Terre Haute wouldn't of been a town without the rail line. If plants would be built in the industrial park out of town instead of the middle of town we wouldn't have as big of problem. If the plants would close because they couldn't get serviced by the trains I bet that would help the traffic problem.... But then again people would have to drive to a town that had a rail service to get a job. Just saying that people need to look at the bigger picture. A lot of jobs in this town need the railroad and as we all know having jobs is a good thing

You are uneducated and it shows.

Terre Haute was a city and an industrial center before the rail lines ever came here. The rails came here because of the industry, not vice versa.

I have already enlightened you twice but you are still a fool. Are you giving up entirely on facts and just spouting nonsense now? I am thinking that you are not worth debating since you lack the basic intellect to put together a logical argument.

Comedian made some very basic statements which you said were stupid and fictitious. You also made the claim that you had "facts" you were waiting to paste to prove him wrong yet have failed to provide as of yet. Either post your argument with credible sources cited or it's obvious that you're just another retard with a view of history based on how you perceive it to fit your agenda opposed to reality. Also, with your lack of a grasp on even the basics of spelling, punctuation, and grammar, you're in no position to give anybody shit about their level of intelligence.

The first Terre Haute depot was built by Chauncey Rose and the Terre Haute & Richmond Railroad on the north side of Wabash Avenue at 10th Street, east of the railroad tracks. It was prepared to serve patrons by early December 1851. The first train transporting passengers to Indianapolis departed on Feb. 14, 1852. Nine years later it became strictly a freight depot.

The city's second depot was built by William D. Griswold's Evansville & Crawfordsville Railroad on the south side of Wabash Avenue, east of the tracks, in 1854. The Evansville & Crawfordsville Railroad made its first junket to the city on Dec. 24.

The Terre Haute & Alton Railroad built the first railroad bridge over the Wabash River in 1855 and was permitted to use the Terre Haute & Richmond depot as a freight depot. When the Terre Haute & Alton was ready to expand service to St. Louis the next year, it hired Griswold, a Terre Haute lawyer, as president to guide the transition.

The railroad's name was changed to "Terre Haute, Alton and St. Louis Railroad" and, subsequently, "St. Louis, Alton & Terre Haute Railroad."

Displeased with the quality of the accommodations at its first depot, the Terre Haute & Richmond acquired William P. Bennett's Station House Hotel at the northwest corner of 10th and Chestnut streets in 1861, converting it into a new "Union Station."

The Evansville & Crawfordsville -- renamed the Evansville & Terre Haute Railroad in 1867 -- shared use of the depot and, for several years, the facility was used by the Terre Haute, Alton & St. Louis. "Union Station" was an apt name.

The Evansville & Terre Haute Railroad continued to utilize its original depot south of Wabash Avenue as a freight terminal.

In 1867, William Riley McKeen succeeded to the presidency of the Terre Haute & Indianapolis Railroad, bringing with him a vision of the city's rail future. The relationship between Rose, Griswold, McKeen, Josephus Collett and William B. Tuell -- Terre Haute's leading rail barons -- was close. Each assisted the others.

Competition surfaced in 1868 when The Bellefountaine ("Bee Line") Railway founded the Indianapolis & St. Louis Railway, building tracks from Terre Haute to Indianapolis nearly parallel to McKeen's railroad.

The Pennsylvania Railroad, which utilized the Terre Haute & Indianapolis tracks, sought assistance. For a price, McKeen agreed to help The Pennsylvania build and operate the new "St. Louis, Vandalia & Terre Haute Railroad" from Terre Haute to St. Louis.

The Indianapolis & St. Louis Railway eventually entered into an agreement to use the St. Louis, Alton & Terre Haute tracks west of Terre Haute. In the 1870s, it built a passenger depot on the north side of Sixth and Tippecanoe streets and an elaborate freight depot two blocks west.
I'm sure I misspelled a few things and it didn't meet your high level of education, but that's the best I can do using a phone Mr double wide
