High Speed Rail Is Running Selectively For Holiday Travel Season


High-speed rail is officially up and running in Illinois, just in time for the Thanksgiving weekend… but it’s probably not getting holiday travelers to their destination much more quickly.

 

Amtrak is running some trains at the top speed of 110 miles per hour, but only along a 15-mile segment between Dwight and Pontiac, and only on the six daily “Lincoln Service” trains along the Chicago to St. Louis corridor.

 

Other trains on that route will continue to operate at a top speed of 79 miles per hour.
