Edd's Supply of Shipshewana IN, is in the process of building a Fertilizer Terminal just west of South Milford Grain in South Milford Indiana, Looks like they will come off the E-W line and build a spur on the south side of the track and it looks like this siding will run N-S. I believe the materials on the work train sitting at the materials on the work train are for the siding that is about to get constructed..

What are the speeds the IN operate at? I saw a video on YouTube and they looked to be moving at a decent pace.

I believe a good portion of their trackage is Class 2 and is good for 25 mph. They're working on E-W trackage east of Ashley IN, doing ties and then they will resurface it. This work continues all the way to Pergo

You can't help but be impressed with the Indiana Northeastern has been able to accomplish. The railroad industry needs more small operators that have to hustle for every carload and fewer monolithic corporations that view operations from "30,000 feet".
