I wish I could tell you for sure, but it isn't much, maybe a local. That was a scenic line, and a good one to fan in the early 1990s. Bainbridge is on the dead end stub end of it now. It's been a few years since I was there. I guess if you were to catch something, it would be a good catch.

I don't know the number, but it's not much. There's the local, J771, which runs down from Lafayette to the concrete plant at Greencastle (Limedale). And there are scattered trains that run south through Bainbridge, then head west at Greencastle on the St Louis Line. Mostly I've seen grain trains do this, but some manifest as well. I'm not sure if there are any actual scheduled trains through there, except for the 771. There's a lot more action at either Greencastle or Crawfordsville. If you're dead set on Bainbridge, try catching the 771 in the afternoon. Every time I've seen him cut under the St Louis Line at Greencastle, it's been late afternoon.

Qualifier: It's been at least a year since I've spent any significant time in Greencastle, so YMMV.

EDIT: And BTW, it's dispatched by the SA Desk, at 160.590

Update/Verification:
Besides the 771, there are no regular trains scheduled through Bainbridge. There will, however, still be grain trains, loads south and empties north, through there on a random basis. I'd imagine that'll pick up here during grain season.

I am moving out that way in Dec.,have had alot of fun with the CSX mains just North of Greencastle.Was just curious about fanning around Bainbridge.
I live on the west side of Indy and enjoy the traffic I get now. Hope to hear a horn off in the distance around my new house.

Well as a matter of fact while in the midst of moving to Bainbridge, I did have to stop for a southbound grain train.Not sure of the power as I was a ways back at the grade crossing.It was moving at quite a clip.Definitley brought a smile to my face.
Cheers, Matt
