Re: Buckhorn Plastics/Bluffton IN

There was an item in the local newspaper this week that 20/20 had applied for TIF for some equipment. New equipment needs raw materials, so it could be good news for Wabash Central.

Re: Penn-Central questions

This board has been pretty dead the last year or so, so hopefully no one will mind if I ask a couple somewhat nonsense questions about PennCentral back in the day. 1.
