One of the most important ideas employed in chemical graph theory is that of so-called topological
indices. This is to associate a numerical value with a graph structure that often has some kind of
correlation with corresponding chemicals properties. In this paper, we consider some infinite
families of 3-fence graphs, namely, ladder, circular ladder and Mobius ladder. We compute some
of the eccentricity based topological indices of these graphs and their line graphs.
