Anybody care to rehash the history of Indiana Hi-Rail? I recall a 1992-ish collapse, a very interesting roster, and a lot of random branch lines across Indiana that appeared to be sinking into the mud. That's about it. It might give some interesting background to the current dispute. Thanks.

Well, CKIN has decided to shake things up a bit on this, to the detriment of some of the Hoosier Valley excursions.

'can't say that I'm surprised that car storage money is apparently one of the motivations here.
