    ... through it as the town I'm living in now, according to the Google Map at the resolution that shows rail lines, so its no surprise that its on STRACNET and on the NARP expanded Amtrak service proposal.

      Sadly, not much left there now in the way of industry.  At one time there was a solvents plant and lots of strip mining nearby, and of course farms.  You may have heard a song called "The Wabash Cannonball" that was about a famous train line through the area back in the day.  ;)
      In my old age, I'd much rather ride a train than fly or drive.  And if it goes fast enough like you mentioned above, even the grandkids would enjoy it!
