Bygone Monon Intelligence Agency (BMIA)

Formerly known as Contributors.....

The volume of work that you have been viewing started as a hobby and a way to pass the time to and from visits to my ailing Mother, who when this work started taking wings, was hospitalized in Hammond, Indiana.

Since then, we have grown and expanded to the present web site. There have been so many people who have contributed pictures or information on places all along the former Monon Route. These individuals I now consider my Bygone Monon Intelligence Agency (BMIA).

As time marches on, I hope people who have contributed pictures and information that are not listed here will please contact me, so I can add them to this page. I am proud of the work and time that I have put into this "hobby" and web site. It has been worth every minute I have spent working on it. This is one way I can acknowledge those people who have encouraged and helped me.
