TP&W's "through" trains are pretty much nocturnal affairs, especially in east central Illinois. These trains leave East Peoria late evening Su-Tu-Th arriving the Hoosierlift the next morning and leave the Hoosierlift late evening Mo-We-Fr, arriving EP the next morning. The Indiana Local works west from the Hoosierlift most days a week in the mornings and returns east in the early afternoons, though when and where the train is depends on how much work is performed enroute. Runs are also made to Logansport about once a week and to Lafayette to interchange with CSXT. Locals are called out of East Peoria to work east as far as Gilman perhaps two or three days per week, and more frequently during the grain rush.
As for East End customers, on-line grain elevators are at Reynolds, Wolcott, Remington, Goodland (2), Sheldon (2 - one is on KBSR), Crescent City, La Hogue, Piper City, Chatsworth, Fairbury, Weston, Meadows, Gridley and Cruger. Other customers are fertilizer dealers at Burnettsville, Idaville, Reynolds, Wolcott, Remington, Goodland (2), Kentland (on former Conrail line), Sheldon, Crescent City, Gilman, Fairbury (2), Chenoa and Gridley.
Incobrasa Industries is a big customer served at Gilman. Cole Hardwood ships lumber from Logansport on occasion and Kerry Ingredients at Gridley gets rice loads on a regular basis. Active interchanges are at Chatsworth (BLOL), Gilman (IC), Webster (KBSR), Reynolds (CSXT - takes place at Lafayette) and Logansport (NS and WSRY).
In the Peoria metropolitan area, Morton has Nestle USA/Libby's, Fort Transfer and Morton Buildings, East Peoria has East Peoria Materials (limestone and road salt) a currently dormant intermodal terminal and Peoria has ADM Grain, Peoria Barge Terminal, Peoria River Terminal and a customer switched for BNSF - Caterpillar's rubber facility. TP&W supposedly still has access to Keystone Steel & Wire's wire mill and also AmerenCILCO's E. D. Edwards Station, but does not service them. At Mapleton there are six users - Chemtura, Evonik Degussa, Corn Products (sorbitol), Lonza, Caterpillar and CF Industries.
