Twenty years ago last month, a southbound Indiana Southern Railroad crew blocks busy US 41 as it brings interchange traffic to CSX at Wansford Yard in the far northern part of Evansville IN. ISRR, operating mostly the former Pennsylvania Railroad line from Indianapolis southwestward toward Vincennes. and ultimately on to this point near Evansville, was first a RailTex property, then, through merger became a Rail America road, and finally, found itself part of the Genesee & Wyoming stable of short lines.

The trackage rights between Lynnville and Yankeetown is on track that did not even exist in 1928. The segment between Lynnville and the NS/Sou interchange is the PCCX (Peabody Coal Company). ISRR shares trackage rights over the PCCX with NS (Norfolk Southern) and SCS (Squaw Creek Coal - "Squaw Creek Southern"). The segment between the NS/Sou junction and Yankeetown is YDC (Yankeetown Dock Corp.), which is jointly owned by PCCX and AMAX (AMAX Mining). Near Yankeetown is the Alcoa Warrick Operations.
