If you are a railroad enthusiast, you are invited to the 29th Annual Illinois Traction Society Meet.  The society remembers the history of the Illinois Terminal Railroad, and this year’s event will be held in Edwardsville.  A bus tour, however, will take participants on an excursion from Granite City to Litchfield.

Dale Jenkins, railroad researcher, tells The Big Z he has put together a narrative for the tour that will retrace much of the former Illinois Terminal Railroad “South End.”

That tour will begin at 9am Saturday, April 25th at the Edwardsville Knights of Columbus Hall.  The evening dinner and presentation will be held at the KC Hall beginning at 6pm.  For more information call 217-423-4877, or click on the link:  http://illinoistractionsociety.org
