THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL RR.

The Illinois Central's Santa Train was on the move December 14th and 15th of 2002. It started at Ludlow IL and worked its way north toward Kankakee in the two day period.
 It was my first time seeing the IC Santa Train and i must say I was impressed by the whole operation. It is a great thing for the railroad to do. I really enjoyed seeing the IC E9 on the point!
 
Enjoy the pictures below.
