If you have ever traveled through the Springfield, Illinois area recentl, you probably missed a great little railroad museum just south of Springfield. The town of Chatham, Illinois has preserved their Chicago and Alton depot. The depot sits next to the Amtrak/UP line that runs from Chicago to St. Louis. The line is getting an upgrade to 110 mph for the higher speed program.
The museum is a great example of what can be done, when like minded people come together and preserve history.
