Madison Railroads’ historic railroad platform in North Vernon is being rebuilt to celebrate the lasting legacy of Indiana’s first operating railroad in the State of Indiana. The platform will have a few of the original platform pavers, new pavers, 15 historic photos, a map, an original Pennsylvania Railroad mile marker and historic descriptions below visitors’ feet as they walk along the 243’ platform. The Bicentennial torch relay will also load at the platform on a special train that will carry the torch to the Town of Vernon.
