RAILROAD OPERATING INFORMATION

CSX TRANSPORTATION

Crawfordsville Branch Subdivision

FORMERLY New York Central Railroad (Peoria & Eastern Railway)
CONSTRUCTED 1869 by Indianapolis Bloomington & Western Railroad
NOT INCLUDED IN CONRAIL 1976 (Indianapolis-Clermont)
PASSENGER SERVICE: Amtrak Cardinal and Hoosier State

In the late 1970's, after deteriorated track conditions on two different Penn Central lines had made direct Amtrak service between Chicago and Indianapolis impractical, Amtrak selected upgrading of this unlikely line to enable restoration of such service. Amtrak service over this segment was introduced in 1980.

Between Indianapolis and Clermont, with abandonment of the original segment, trains now use the former Pennsylvania Railroad line between those points.
