I can remember pacing next to an Indiana Hi-Rail Alco back about 1994 i think and i remember it was around the Ind-Ohio state line, He had about a dozen cars or so just rocking back and forth badly, It is safe to assume that differed maintenance started catching up to the IHRC quite early.

Has there been any progress on the crossing removals in Liberty Center?

3/29/17 while going from Defiance to Fort Wayne today on 24 I noticed a contractor spraying the ROW.. the line looks like crap still.. got more waves in it then a bag of Lays ! Pioneer has replaced a couple boat loads of ties and looks like I see ballast ! Train was headed east behind the spray truck..

Requirement of getting the money from the state. Also would have to post stop signs if rails still crossed the pavement.
