1990 was a year of change along the Mainline of Mid-America.
That was the year that management decided to single-track the mainline between Chicago and New Orleans. In this volume, we see that last months of the double track mainline and the early months of single track operations between Effingham and Cairo in Illinois.
We also get a glimpse at the work making the cutover to single track at Carbondale, Illinois.
By 1990, most of the railroad's locomotives had been repainted into the new black paint scheme, and several models were still in operation that would not be on the roster for long.
As a special bonus, a retired Illinois Central engineer gives us a tour of preserved 4-8-2 #2500 in Centralia, Illinois.
This program is a must for any Illinois Central fan.
