GTW trains on the DT&I

I was curious how many trains a day ran across the old DT&I on the Flat Rock Sub south of Flat Rock, and what those trains were (identity, origin/destination), in the early 80's when the GTW first took over? Not necessarily locals, just ordinary freights.

Here are a few I know of but there are probably some I am forgetting

There was a pair of trains between Flat Rock and Cincinnati (one to L&N and the other to SOU or their successors).

Flat Rock to Toledo trains (CR) (I think the Pittsburg train was discontinued by the time GTW acquired DT&I)

Flat Rock to Delta (N&W)

Flat Rock to Springfield (I think interchange at Glen Jean and Gregg's had stopped by the time GTW acquired DT&I)

Springfield to Jackson (connection with Jackson to Ironton Local)

I think the intermodal train between Flat Rock and Cincinnati did not start up until late 1980's.
