Rydman & Fox operates the Indian Creek Railroad from their location northwest of Anderson, Indiana, to the Florida Station connection with main line railroad service. Indian Creek Railroad was formed in 1981 to provide economical shipping of outgoing grain and incoming bulk fertilizer for Rydman & Fox customers. The company operates numerous trains each year headed by their locomotive, #6002, shown below on a brisk February 2002 morning.

Acquired in 1982, the #6002 is an ex-Southern Paciic Alco RS11 built in 1959 and rebuilt in 1996. The well maintained RS11 earns its keep filling hoppers, making up grain trains to be picked up at Florida Station on Norfolk Southern's Indian Creek Secondary, and bringing fertilizer cars back up the hill to the bulk storage facilitiy.
