Re: Pioneer RR Northern Indiana Lines Questions

Yes are looking bleak but there actually is new business on the horizon. Viking Paper expanded in Plymouth Indiana last year and that included a rail spur to the plant, but I have no idea if they are getting rail shipments right now. http://www.insideindianabusiness.com/story/33364267/viking-paper-e...
