Amtrak Lincoln Service Passes Union Pacific Work Crew Springfield Illinois

Amtrak Lincoln Service 303 – 20 minutes + late – passing Union Pacific work crew on outskirts of Springfield Illinois. Location Woodside Road at Interurban Trail parking lot. Normally trains reduce speeds when passing work crews. Do to ongoing Illinois higher speed track upgrades – Amtrak does this often. I was a bit surprised when Lincoln Service zoomed by at speed.

Unfortunately this very busy intersection is still waiting for quad gates. Part of Illinois higher speed rail upgrades – crossings are being closed or quad gates and other safety systems are being put in place.
