Building on yesterday’s news, here is the updated schedule. It looks reasonably convienient to me for normal business purposes, but I still think they’ll need special event trains departing later in the evening following night games for the Indians, Reds, Browns, Bengals, Cavs, Blue Jackets, Crew, and of course Buckeyes (a lot huh?). Hopefully that can be worked out.

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Ohio’s 3C passenger trains just got a lot faster.
State officials released a new train schedule yesterday showing that the journey from Cincinnati to Cleveland would take as little as five hours and 11 minutes, which shaves more than an hour off the state’s initial forecast.
The revision boosts the average train speed to more than 50 mph (including stops), a significant improvement over the oft-cited 39-mph figure state officials included in their application for a federal grant.
