My Bio and This Blog's Purpose

My Photo

I'm here to spread my ideas on how passenger rail can be improved in America without telling the same stories most people in the rail community have told for nearly 43 years. I offer a different perspective on passenger rail because things need to change in a hurry given divided government in Washington and an interest from outsiders to operate intercity service.

The Hoosier Corridor will relocate to Millennium Station since the connecting track is already in place at Harvey Junction.  Once there are more roundtrips, the Hoosier State’s numbers will be changed to reflect Corridor Capital’s operation. Also, the expanded schedule reflects track improvements laid out by All Aboard Ohio and improved Indianapolis-Louisville times.

Stations
·         All stations currently unstaffed will be handled by CorrCap
·         Columbus, IN will be the only stop between Indianapolis and Louisville
·         Joint Amtrak-CorrCap stations will be Lafayette, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati
·         In the future, Amtrak may change its stops to receive/discharge only between Chicago and Indianapolis and skip the CorrCap stations with the exceptions of Dyer and Connersville
·         Also note that the current shelter in Crawfordsville will be replaced by an actual station and that Amtrak will skip it once Corridor Capital expands service
