Well, one theory is that CP is backing CF&E's play here, and maybe that is where the cars will come from. As for connections, it has been suggested that that the loads will go to IHB's Gibson Yard, and IHB basically connects with everybody.

:? Lots of speculation on this topic going on the Indiana board, these people need to get a life! It is a Ft. Wayne issue and should be discussed on this board where it belongs.

Well, I wish we could get more people and more content over here, but the sad truth is this place can be EXTREMELY dead for long periods of time. It makes for a lot of one way discussions.

The below listing was lifted from this site's "Rail Operations" segment. Is it still accurate? Has it been superseded with any new traffic resulted from the rack business? How many days per week does each train run?

You can always read the first page of TO for free. The TO comments gave no clues as to what the issues may be.
