The MONON Business Car "The Lynne"

The Business Car "The Lynne" on Monon rails at the Indiana Railway Museum.

The Monon, formerly the Lynne and Business 2 back on Monon rails at the Indiana Railways Museum in French Lick. Plenty of photos and video clips are on the Picture pages and Video Clips page below.

What a great job, by many people, to help bring this project to a conclusion. Their behind the scenes work and the generousity of the Brown Family can never be fully appreciated.

The Story Of The Car And The Move to French Lick, Indiana.


MONON Equipment moved to the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum (HVRM) in North Judson, Indiana.


In 2023 the MRH-TS decided to donate the Business Car #2 and the Caboose 81532 to the HVRM.
So in October of 2023 that process began..


  Railfan & Railroad Magazine article

Caboose 81532 and Business Car #2 are presently sitting on a siding in Dubois IN.
They have passed NS inspection and will most likely be moved to the NS interchange in Huntingburg on Sunday (10/29/2023).

The cars are still in Dubois, Indiana awaiting the FLSR to move them to Huntingburg (11/5/2023).

The caboose and business car will be moved to Jasper, from Dubois tomorrow (11/16/2023). They will remain at Jasper
until NS contacts the Dubois County Railroad. Then the cars will be moved to Huntingburg for interchange to NS.

Most likely stay in Argos tonight and then hopefully to the CKIN interchange in Thomaston tomorrow.


The latest information is that the cars will be moved to HVRM on Monday or Tuesday.

The cars should arrive Monday morning at the HVRM interchange. So they should be on the property mid day.

The Caboose and Business car arrived at the museum this morning.  The business car was put into the shop, out of the weather, and locked up.

Arrival to HVRM (12/11/2023), Mission accomplished.
