Default More coal on the Indiana Rail Road

Here is a link to an interview with the President of the INRD, discussing completion of their new spur to serve a very large coal mine that is about to begin operations near Dugger, IN. This is a big deal for the INRD, as I've seen that it could support loading 3-4 trains a DAY in the future.

I would expect the trains that run to Merom will be INRD powered, but the others he mentions going offline may well have CSX or NS run through power. This is already done to some extent on the line.

Also, as a side note, this was a big win for the INRD-- this mine could have reached CSX or CN with a spur nearly the same length, you needed maybe another mile to get to their lines.
