Better late than no answer - CIND runs a 4pm crew out of Valley Jct OH to Greensburg Tuesday thru Saturday. Assuming they don’t have to go east to dog catch first, they typically arrive at Honda in Greensburg beteen 8PM and 10PM. Spend 2 or so hours putting inbound train away and picking up outbound train which is built and on yard air. Once or twice a week they have work on the old Westport Running Track just west of “downtown” Greensburg that will cost them another 1-2 hours. Service on Sunday’s and Monday’s happens often, but times can virtually any time - not really set schedule. On average, they end up making 6 round trips a week. Power is generally a pair of SD40-2s out of the IORY stable. Switching at Honda is done by Road and Rail Services who utilizes and pair of ex CSX MP15Ts in patched CSX paint. Line between a Greensburg and Shelbyville is long out of service and totally grown up.
