Explore the entire Illinois Central System – now another fallen flag. In two discs, conveniently in one case, see the North end of the system and then the South end of the IC. In Volume 1 we explore the exciting northern half of the Illinois Central Railroad from the Chicago area to Fulton, Kentucky during the pre-merger days of 1996. In Volume 2 we visit the southern half of the Illinois Central Railroad as it existed in 1996 for an eye-opening tour of discovery. The secrets of the IC unfold as our travels take you from Fulton, Kentucky to New Orleans.
Informative maps and train symbols are displayed to help identify the different parts of the system. IC’s diesel roster included GP11s, GP40s, SD20s, SD40-2s, SD70s, and Paducah-built SW14s, SD28s, SD40s, GP10s, and a GP38. Hop on board as we depart for a rewarding trip down the “Main Line of Mid-America!”
