I'm sure Bill is referring to Citizens Coke and Gas Utility in Indianapolis. It was shut down over a year ago and is being dismantled as we speak.
CC&G coke was a good source of car loadings for the Monon and NKP in our era. They also shipped tar and molten sulfur, both by products of the coke making process. I was surprised to learn that a lot of the traffic on the Monon went to smaller mills and foundaries all over the midwest.
I had incorrectly assumed that the loads always went to the large mills in the Calumet Region.

Indianapolis still has a coke gas production facility. Both the NKP and
Monon had specialty cars assigned to carry the coke, primarily to steel
mills. It now goes by truck.
