With the New Year creeping up on me at an accelerating pace, I have already been thinking about what I want to accomplish next year and am frantically trying to close out old business as well. One of the items on my to do list is to wrap up old Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums traveling business. What I mean by this is for every chapter of the book, it seems as if I have some sort of side story or point of interest along the way that I would like to draw attention to.

So. That being said, in accordance with the prophecy (I’m sorry, I just honestly could not help myself), I have to share these photos of the Indianapolis Union Railroad Station. I stumbled upon it on my way to investigate Ashmore Estates in Illinois for Chapter 1.

If you know me, you know I have a semi-obsession with trains and train stations. But not in a weird way. Candidly, I’ve never even actually packed a bag and been on a destination train, although I REALLY, REALLY want to, Amtrak. Are you listening, Amtrak? I think it is one of those things we just don’t get to do down here in Georgia. I mean, I’m all for it. I would love to ride a train somewhere. I just don’t want it to take two days and cost $1,000.00 to get from Georgia to New Orleans, you heard?

But I digress. I just wanted you to see this building.
