The Central Indiana and Western Railroad (reporting mark CEIW) is a short-line switching and terminal railroad in southwestern Madison County in Indiana. It branches off a CSX line near the city of Anderson and runs approximately seven miles west-southwest, terminating at Lapel near the western border of the county. About three miles of operation are on CSX. The primary traffic is glass-making materials and cullet shipped from South Anderson Yard to Lapel and some grain traffic generated in Lapel is shipped to the South Anderson Yard along the CI&W. The line was formerly part of the Central Indiana Railway, jointly owned by the New York Central Railroad and Pennsylvania Railroad.
