1: An info plaque just south of East 86th Street that discusses the history of Nora and the rail line that ran through it. Also, has anyone seen a dog?

2: Taken from the north side of Bridge B174.8 across the White River. Looking south toward Union Station.

3: Taken from the south side of Bridge B174.3. Looking north toward Chicago.

4: Taken from the north side of Bridge B174.3. Looking south toward Union Station.

5: Some ties from a long-abandoned second track are still visible on the east side of the trail just north of the connecting walkway to the Arthur Jordan YMCA. Looking north toward Chicago.

6: Another angle of the ties. Could this be where the Nora depot was? It wouldn't be the grain elevator, the picture on the plaque in 1 (also at the top of the page) shows it being on straight track, and these ties are on the S-curve south of East 86th Street. Looking south toward Union Station.

7: An old signal mounting on the east side of the tracks just south of East 91st Street. I believe this would be Signal B171.8.

8: A pair of several telegraph poles on the west side of tracks that still stand in Nora. These two are a bit south of East 96th Street, but there were several more between here and Bridge B174.8 that aren't in as good condition and/or overgrown to the point of being hard to find. Looking north toward Chicago.

9: Taken from the East 96th Street crossing. Looking south toward Union Station.

10: Taken from the East 91st Street crossing. Looking north toward Chicago.

11: The East 91st Street crossing. Looking south toward Union Station.
