Champaign, Illinois

The Illinois Central Railroad runs from Chicago in the north to New Orleans in the south, a distance of over 900 miles. This fascinating simulation puts the user in charge of the 104-lever power frame at Champaign, 127 miles south of Chicago.

The frame controls the crossing of the Illinois Central with the Peoria & Eastern, and Wabash railroads, together with various connections, the passenger station and leads to the yards.

The traffic includes famed long-distance expresses such as the \"Panama Limited\" and the \"City of New Orleans\", tremendously long freight trains, local switching movements and lots more.

This simulation provides a complete contrast to the other PC-Rail models. The different operating practices and signalling will seem strange to many of our users, but the \"Help\" text provides all the information needed to understand the different methods of working.

Champaign, Illinois is one of our Special Series simulations.
