Woodland Jct. was where Chicago & Eastern Illinois split into two separate main lines. In 1969, when Missouri Pacific acquired Chicago & Eastern Illinois, Missouri Pacific was ordered to sell the more easterly line to Louisville & Nashville, which eventually became part of CSX. This was established as a joint segment, controlled by Missouri Pacific and now Union Pacific. Amtrak's Cardinal and Hoosier State use this route as far south as Thornton Jct., route south of there has been freight only since Amtrak's formation in 1971.
