The Illinois Central and Illinois Central Gulf had particularly nice track charts in the 70s and 80s. These are clear, hand-drawn pages with notes about sidings and industries and detailed maps of some terminals, yards and junctions. The Illinois Central Gulf trackage in this track chart covers the railroad’s northern and central Illinois and Indiana lines. These are the lines south of Chicago, north of Bluford and east of Springfield and the line from Effingham into Indiana to Indianapolis and the line from Mattoon to Evansville.
