B&O to Cincinnati, or Conrail west to Terre Haute and then south on the C&EI?    I suppose L&I to Louisville is an option as well.....

its nice to have options I guess.   It appears that routing via Cincinnati would be shorter.   Any insight as to why The western route would be chosen over the eastern route?

Lack of crews has been a consistent issue with extra trains on the Indy Cincy section. Might be a contributing factor.

You might also like to read this NATIONAL GREOGRAPHIC website feature article about how RBBB is retiring its elephants:  I believe this may be a real eye-opener for TRAINORDERS.COM members..... as in less than 2 more years, we won't have elephants on the show any more.
