ILLINOIS RAIL SYSTEM PLAN--PHASE 2
This State Rail Plan is the qualification of the State of Illinois for Section 402 of the Regional Rail Reorganization Act of 1973 for funds to continue local rail services on Penn Central lines that would otherwise be abandoned. The objectives are minimizing of the adverse impacts of changes in the transportation system and maintenance of an adequate, balanced transportation system to serve the State. Of 280.5 miles of PC trackage not recommended for inclusion in Conrail, 39.6 miles were out of service and not eligible for subsidy. The remaining 240.9 miles are recommended for sale to solvent railroads or for service-continuation subsidies.
