Photo of the Week!

City of New Orleans

This edition of Photo of the Week is brought to you by William whose artful eye captured this photo on an Illinois train!

If you’re looking for quick trips throughout the state, we’ve got you covered. In fact, there are four to choose from!

  • Illini Service: daily service between Chicago and Carbondale, Ill.
  • Saluki: daily service between Chicago and Carbondale, Ill.
  • Carl Sandburg: daily service between Chicago and Quincy, Ill.
  • Lincoln Service: daily service between Chicago and St. Louis, Mo.

These four routes are really popular with college students in the region and allow you lots of extra SnapChat study time since we handle all the driving!

Not only is this week’s winner, William, great at snapping photos from a moving train, he’s also a budding film producer! We’ll send you into the weekend and into the beginning of summer with his Southern Illinois University send-off video. Enjoy but grab a tissue … sniffle … sniffle … school’s out, folks!
