 Name:  Effinger, Indiana(elevation 414')
 Mile Post:  242.0
 Previous Station:  Meyers
 Next Station:  Hillside
 Description:  Effinger was the location of a steam shovel pit that was purchased circa 1899 from Thomas Effinger for the purpose of filling in bridge #365.  Bridge #364 was the bridge over Pigeon Creek, so #365 must have been south of there....  The three acre pit was located to the east of the tracks and a triangular piece of land on the south side of the pit was leased.  Effinger had a short existence, appearing in either 1900 or 1901, but disappearing in 1901 or 1902 from employee time tables.
