BNS Brookfield Sub question

Post by Rockingham Racer » Tue Jun 08, 2004 10:26 am

What runs on this sub besides the Amtrak trains to Quincy? Train symbols would be helpful, as I'm working on a simulation of the Galesburg area.

Another question: What runs on the Peoria sub these days?

When I worked there, there were several M series trains. One went to St. Louis, Tulsa, KC, and I think Memphis. One of htem ran throuhg Galesburg to Northtown. While I was there, the company got into a pissing match with the K Line crews (W. Quincy-Burlington) about marking off and not being available. Many of the south bound coal trains were rerouted via Galesburg.
Once because of a flood on the SF, the line was used as a bypass.

SP used this line at one time in the early 90's until the Merger of BN and SF.
