I'm not allowed to drive the train
The whistle I can not blow,
I'm not the one who designates
How far the train shall go…

I'm not allowed to blow off steam
Or even ring the bell… But
Let the damn thing jump the track
And see who catches hell !!

On August 22, 1998, CSX and NS exercised their options and took control of Conrail. On June 1, 1999, they began operating their portions. See the Breakup Of Conrail.

At the end of 1999, the Anderson Herald Bulletin poled it's readership to determine the top 50 People of the Century. Number 6 on the list was Charles L. Henry who coined the word interurban. He was the driving force behind the Union Traction Company which later became a part of the Indiana Railroad moving people, packages and freight over much of Indiana with traction lines. The system was dissolved in 1941, a victim of the automobile and the bus.

  Also included in the top 50 was Ike Duffey who owned and operated the packing plant that became Emge Packing Co., owned the semi-pro Anderson Packers basketball team and saved the Central Indiana Railway Co. from extinction.
