In the crossroads of America, it's pretty easy to get around by driving or flying. But if you want to take the train, your options are limited.

Proponents of more rail service hope the Indianapolis-to-Chicago line so far will help prove their point to lawmakers.
On a Friday morning, the Hoosier State train is snaking north between Dyer and the Illinois state line. About 90 passengers sleep in their seats, eat breakfast in the dining car or use free WiFi.
