Work in progress... ~NICTD's South Shore Mainline is extended to Elkhart mirroring the existing Norfolk Southern tracks. NYC once had that as a four track mainline, so space is not an excuse, lack of will is. East coast Amtrak service along with Michigan service utilize this line as their Chicago gateway. More tracks can be added if needed. I do not want to see service electrified unless the 1500 Volts DC is upgraded along with the rolling stock at 25 kV 60 Hz AC. 90 to 110 MPH service could easily be upgraded from Dune Park eastward through the rural parts. ~Chicago to Indianapolis is a high speed rail line. The line begins at Union Station and uses the CHIP improvement plan to use the CN next to the Metra Electric mainline before switching onto the South Shore Line at 115th Street. It then follows the SSL and the West Lake District (opens in 2025) to Dyer before switching on its own tracks which can be built next to the existing CSX Monon line or upgrade and double track the existing line to Lafayette. From Lafayette to Indianapolis, the line rebuilds a former Pennsylvania ROW going through Frankfort. Again instead of hybrid AC/DC locomotives the Metra/SSL mainline would need an electrical service upgrade to 25 kV 60 Hz AC. ~The former Pennsylvania mainline ~The Michigan Mittens are a route from Detroit to Traverse City and Petoskey. They are the perfect candidate for EMU or DMU service. The trains can split at Walton, or leave at independent times giving those south of Walton more service. ~The Pere Marquette adds a branch to Muskegon. This could be accomplished by running a train with multiple locomotive or using EMUs or DMUs. Or a traditional looking train with the final coach or two being a DMU and splitting at Holland. ~CIMTA (Central Indiana Metro Transportation Authority) is in charge of regional and commuter lines serving Indianapolis and the greater central Indiana region. -CIMTA Blue Line - Terre Haute/ISU -CIMTA Orange Line - Crawfordsville/Wabash -CIMTA Black Line - Lafayette/Purdue -CIMTA Red Line - Bloomington/IU CIMTA Pink Line - Seymour -CIMTA Yellow Line - Shelbyville -CIMTA Green Line - Muncie/Ball State -CIMTA Gray - Marion/IWU ~The Madison Hiawatha travels between Chicago and the Twin Cities via Madison. From Union Station to Fox Lake it follows the Milwaukee District North line before continuing on the northwest along the Wisconsin and Southern tracks between Fox Lake and Janesville. 3.5 Miles of track have been removed between Evansville and Brooklyn, WisDOT could purchase the line between Janesville and Madison and reconstruct it. Then connecting with the existing Empire Builder service at Portage using the Wisconsin Northern tracks between Portage and Madison.
