The Hoosier State was to make its last trip today with Iowa Pacific equipment and on-board service.
The train will operate from Indianapolis to Chicago. The last run from Chicago to Indianapolis was to occur on Monday night.
IP pulled out of the Hoosier State operation after the Indiana Department of Transportation spurned its request for more funding.
Amtrak and IP had shared the state funding of the quad-weekly run with Amtrak being paid for providing operating personnel and acting as the go-between with the host railroads. IP provided equipment and marketing support.
Operation of the tri-weekly Chicago-New York Cardinal, which shares the Hoosier State route between Indianapolis and Chicago, will remain unchanged.
No. 50 operates eastbound through Indiana on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday while westbound No. 51 operates on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
The Hoosier State operates on days and schedule slots that the Cardinal does not. The two trains serve the same stations in Indiana.
