Upcoming Cincinnati Railway Excursions
« on: April 03, 2009, 10:01:50 AM »
Posting this under CIND Ops thread, as it will effect CIND (and Honda train) ops, but Mr Moderator can move or cross reference to excursion thread if he like.   Cincinnati Railway Company has an active excursion schedule on CIND this year with trips in June, September, and October.  In all, looks like 3 Cincinnati to Greensburg public trips (plus a dead head move), a Cincinnati to Batesville trip, a Batesville to Greensburg trip, and 6 Greensburg to Batesville trips.

Dear All;

Due to the increase in rail service on the former NYC Indianapolis line, the Cincinnati Railway Company has decided to cancel the scheduled excursions for September 26 and October 17th & 24th.

We are talking about doing something possibly in November, on the same lines like we did last year.

Since the Auto Rack train operates on Saturdays which is the same time we were going to operate the planned excursions, and doing anything on Sunday would not work either because the area the we use to park and load the train, is the same parking lot that the Cincinnati Bengals use when they are home.

I had hoped we were going to operate some addition trains this year over the former NYC Indy Line, but at this time i am not sure. ::)

When i get some more information on weather an trip for the remainder of 2009 is possible, i will post it as soon as we have comfirmation.

Stay tuned for futher updates.
