Thumbs up Coming soon: Evansville Western Railway

Paducah and Louisville has purchased about 125 miles of CSX track that runs west of Evansville and is known as the SD. They are going to operate the line from Evansville IN to Okawville IL. Currently trains just run to McLeansboro IL, but the track is in place to St. Louis.
This should make things interesting in Mt Vernon IL as NS and CSX cross over UP within a couple hundred feet of each other.
I hear that the power for this line is on order, and will be some shade of green.

A little more info (but not much!) at
