If you are a railroad enthusiast, you are invited to the annual Illinois Traction Society Meet.  The society remembers the history of the Illinois Terminal Railroad, and this year’s event will be held in Decatur.  The event organizer says there is plenty of interest to draw people from this area to the event.

Dale Jenkins, railroad researcher, tells The Big Z this will be their 30th anniversary meet.
