Where exactly is the old line car? Is it sitting back on its trucks and can it be viewed whatsoever at a distance in Michigan city at this Sheridan location? Any way to see it still ?

No, it's in a building near Sheridan. The trucks are sitting outside next to the building and can be seen from passing trains.

Does the 1100 have WH 567 motors and WH HBF-XM160 control like the old standard cars, or slightly different equipment?

The control is the same as the orange cars. Not sure about the motors.
