The whole using Superliners on the Illini/Saluki is the result of demands by the CN. For years, CN has insisted that Amtrak run longer trains in order to activate crossing gates and signals. Recently, CN has insisted that Amtrak use Superliners. This whole crossing activation is a real crock, since railroads all over the world can safely run short trains through crossings. It all boils down to CN's anti-passenger attitude.So, are they just never coming to the Illini/Saluki? The one train I regularly use.
