Thread: Any good quality IC/IC stand in routes?

    At one point the Southern was seriously involved in merger talks with the IC. That would have been interesting. There would be a big dose of extra traffic on the IC from the south that is now mostly moving up the rathole. With the CofG in the Southern fold that would have made a lot of sense.

    - Birmingham (NS-based but running some IC on it works out just fine)
    - Monon-2 (mostly Indiana territory, but is close enough)
    - CN Blackfoot (Canadian route, but parts of it works for some of the IC's more rural branches)

    ... as an aside, I don't believe that the GMO Springfield Switch route alluded to above is available any longer since the Mophouse site closed down a while back.
    I've already got the Monon-2 route. (Very wounderfull route by the way )

    I'll be sure to pick up the other four routes and give them a try!

    With that being said.
    Are there any good Southern routes on here?
