You know, I hadn't even thought about mentioning it here, but I am getting sort of excited. The Chicago to St. Louis leg is getting pretty close to being a high-speed corridor. Apparently they have actually several miles of it done...they just haven't adjusted the schedule yet, or started running public trains on it. However, last October, there was a special press/politician train from here (Normal, IL) to Lexington, IL. Just a 10 mile stretch, but it got up to 109 mph!!! Exciting! It's great....I live just a couple blocks from the Bloomington/Normal train station, and I have a scanner. In fact, I walk right past the train station, and over the tracks on my way to campus. On the scanner last fall I was hearing all kinds of action on there. They were running a train with 2 horizons and an amfleet lounge (which as I understand it, has all kinds of video hooked up to it for the guests to see what's happening in the cab, and down the tracks, and so forth). There was a genesis on each end too....#58 and #59, I believe. What excitement!!!!!! It might actually happen!
