Explore the exciting northern half of the Illinois Central Railroad from the Chicago area to Fulton, Kentucky during the pre-merger days of 1996. Pentrex takes you on a journey down the main line where you'll see locals, switch jobs, through-freights, and fast intermodal trains hard at work. The IC intersected with a variety of other railroads on its southward trek so you'll also be treated to the sight of Union Pacific, Conrail, Norfolk Southern, CSX, and Burlington Northern trains at those diamonds.|
Train symbols are provided to enhance your understanding of how the Illinois Central fit together as a system. Mile markers, and maps of each district help identify the lines being presented and a rundown of IC's diesel roster explains which types of units were in use. These include GP11s, GP40s, SD20s, SD40-2s, SD70s, and Paducah-built SW14s, SD28s, SD40s, GP10s, and a GP38. Here's your opportunity to experience great action circa 1996 along the "Main Line of Mid-America!"<
