I've looked at the report again, and I see Indy to Cincy and Indy to Dayton both on it as ultimately desirable, but my understanding is that the 3 Cs + D bit is being concentrated on now as the most doable since it's all in one State which appears to be more receptive than in the past. Getting things up to the desired level of full connectivity is going to take a lot of work and some hard choices about what to do first and what bits need to happen at the same time to be successful. I'll gladly admit that my knowledge of local geography, culture, and rail availability and condition is lacking. I think that there has been enough demographic and other change that the routing of yesteryear may not be a very good guide to what's needed now. 'Corridors' may not be the be all and end all of future passenger planning, but it seems to me to be a good way to get a few bits of new service up and running. Hopefully enough of these few will be successful enough to build support for more. A passenger rail resurgence is still possible in this country, but it's going to take a massive amount of work and money and some luck too, and my guess is that even if it more or less succeeds, the end result won't quite be what anyone planned, and it won't be a return to the Golden Age either. Given that Indy to Dayton is the longest leg of this triangle, and has no tracks, it makes sense to me that it's not on the front burner, no matter how desirable it might be as part of some ideal rail network that would take 10-15 years, a mountain of cash, and a political miracle sustained thru several administrations to make happen. I hate the cynicism that I sometimes see here and elsewhere about why we can't have a functioning rail network, but pie in the sky is not going to get us there either. Sorry for being a bit ranty.Not at all. That's probably a good three hours or more longer divergence. Indy to Columbus is a straight shot of about 2:30 by driving.
