The Monon was a unique and colorful Indiana railroad that was run with the same intensity and professionalism that one would find on a much larger system. While it was big enough to have a varied diesel fleet and financially strong enough to have modern equipment and high-speed, signal protected main lines, the Monon remained accessible and understandable. The Monon had friendly employees, interesting equipment, and just enough trains to make its operations interesting and fun to experience. Includes locomotive roster data.
