Cleveland-Columbus-Cincinnati 3 trains each way!  It just seems like a slam dunk to replicate that, but Ohio has never gotten to that point.
Also, there wasn't really an early morning departure from Indy to Chicago.  Just an overnight train, with a very early arrival.

Ohio almost got started, but then-Gov. John Kasich turned down the federal money the state was awarded. This after years of hard work by advocacy groups to get to that point...... Very demoralizing!

The NYC was down to only one train each way between St. Louis and Indianapolis.
