On Nov. 10, the Indiana Rail Road Co. (INRD) held a ceremony in Indianapolis to mark its 2 millionth carload since the railroad was formed in 1986. It took the 500-mile regional 18 years and nine months to haul its first 1 million carloads, but only six years and 11 months to transport the second million. The railroad estimates the 2 million carloads are equivalent to diverting more than 8 million truckloads from highways. Managing Editor Jeff Stagl chats with INRD President and CEO Tom Hoback about the milestone event.
