CR on the Muncie(IN) Belt line

The Muncie Belt line was an old PRR line built to serve industries around Muncie, IN like the company that makes Ball canning jars.  It was normally a nocturnal operation during Conrail but on a cold day in December 1984, Bob Jettmore took these three shots of the local running on the Muncie belt on his way home from work.  We are thankful that Bob was nice enough to allow his images to be posted on here for all to enjoy of this very rare occurence.
