The future Chicago-Moline service is a great idea. It's certainly a start for getting corridor rail service as close to the Iowa/Illinois border as possible. While it might not cross into Iowa in the beginning of operation, it's great to see that it will stop very close to Davenport. Not only would this route benefit people taking the train all the way to Moline. Stations like Plano, Mendota, and Princeton will gain some additional corridor trains and those towns are good daytrip destinations from Chicagoland. It's presently impossible to make a daytrip from Chicago to Plano, Mendota, and Princeton, given the fact that the Carl Sandburg isn't running yet. However, that will change in one of the next few months. Unfortunately the drawback with the Carl Sandburg is that it departs Chicago a bit early. Having the trains running to Moline will hopefully enable daytrippers heading to Plano, Mendota, and Princeton to sleep a little later.
