Rail News Items From Ohio, Indiana

January 3, 2022

Various railroad related news items of note:

Cargill has taken over the switching of its grain plant in Sidney, Ohio. That work had been done by CSX.

Two switchers in Cargill’s green and white livery have been assigned to the Sidney facility which reportedly will see its yard expanded and realigned.

The Sidney facility is an integrated soybean crush and refined oils plant that is located along the CSX Indianapolis Line (former New York Central).

No injuries occurred on Dec. 23 when a CSX train derailed nine cars at Ansonia, Ohio, also on the Indianapolis Line. The cars were empty auto racks and one turned over.

The derailment occurred as the train was shoving cars around the connection to an R.J. Corman line to Ansonia from Greenville, Ohio.

A story on Dec. 10 damaged the former Pennsylvania Railroad passenger station in Effner, Indiana.

The structure was subsequently razed. Since the Conrail era the former PRR line that once extended from Logansport to Effner has been operated by the Toledo, Peoria & Western.
