Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels will visit Muncie tomorrow for a job announcement that will bring hundreds of jobs to the area.  The Indiana Economic Development Corporation has scheduled an 11 A-M announcement at the former A-B-B building on Cowan Road.  The 740,000 square-foot plant closed in 1998.  The Muncie Star Press reports that the announcement will likely be from Progress Rail Services, an Alabama-based subsidiary of Caterpillar, Incorporated.  The company repairs and rebuilds locomotives.  The Star Press says Progress Rail could create 650 local jobs in Muncie.
