    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!  

    Think what you are doing today. -Fred Rogers
