    This is not surprising what so ever.

    More People us the Empire Builder from Chicago to St Paul, vs Chicago to Indianapolis.

    Reason being the amount of time.
    The Route to Indianapolis is Ridiculous out-dated. 195 Miles
    Try driving down the old Route, US 41 and sooner or later into local Towns you will see Single Track with through Freight Trains.
    One Track only, with Sidings.

    Meanwhile. the Route to St Paul i22 415 Miles with Stops along the way. and it takes only 7.5 hours at the Min. yes, 50% longer in-time. however, more then 2x the mileage.

    From St Paul, the Builder goes on to Seattle and Portland, which Splits in Spokane WB and Merges EB the 2nd Morning, one is in Seattle or Portland. on the Indianapolis, only New York and lucky by 10 pm.
    If St Paul had high speed. which could use a 2nd Train vs too many Stupid Airplanes. it could make it in 6.5 hours at the Min

    Incomplete but fascinating details. Nice to see the best at the last, the rapid growth in total passengers over the past four years.
