Central Railroad Company of Indianapolis

Indiana shortline

Despite its namesake city, the Central Railroad Company of Indianapolis is a 62 mile shortline operating well north of Indianapolis on ex Nickel Plate Road trackage between Kokomo and Hartford City, Indiana. First organized as a shortline in 1989 through Norfolk Southern's Thoroughbred Shortline Program, the line has changed hands over the years -- first Railtex, later RailAmerica, and currently Genessee & Wyoming. The road handles agricultural products, chemicals, paper, scrap, and waste, interchanging with Norfolk Southern at Marion and the Winamac Southern Railway in Kokomo, Indiana.
