  • Interchange:
  • History:
    • Operated by Kokomo Grain company since January 2008, after Rail America's contract to operate the lines ended and was not renewed.
    • Railfan chatter at the time indicated that the owners were less than pleased with Rail America's decision to remove the line from Logansport to Winamac a couple years prior to startup. The line had formed a crucial link in Rail America's route across Illinois and Indiana, joining the TP&W operation with the CERA operation.
