About This Company

The New York Central Railroad came into Fort Wayne from the north and had a small yard where the present OmniSource scrap yard is across from Lawton Park.  This line was built in the 1860's and connected Fort Wayne with Jackson Michigan.  The railroad was known, logically enough, as the Fort Wayne & Jackson Railroad and was briefly operated by the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern before the New York Central took over.  Today a portion of this line exists between 4th Street and Runnion.  It was used by Norfolk Southern to access the former OmniSource scrap yard across from Lawton Park until the scrap yard was closed in 2000.  Currently this segment sees little or no train activity.  The track has long been removed north of downtown Fort Wayne.
