Amtrak Lincoln Service leaving Springfield Illinois at night

I don’t recall what time of night this was. So I’m not able to say which train number this is ( may have been between 8:30 & 9PM ). We heard a train coming in – so pulled over in a parking lot to wait for it to pass. Took a little longer than I expected – I knew it had to be an Amtrak train when it stopped down tracks near station. Loading and unloading seemed to take a bit longer than usual.

This location is across tracks from an apartment complex. Was surprised no one was wondering what the guy with video camera was doing hang out in parking lot.
