Steve Johnson's Illinois Central Gulf

Depicting ICG from Chicago to Gilman, Il in the late 70's. Following towns will be on layout: Kensington (Chicago), Riverdale, Dolton, Harvey, Markham Yard, Homewood, Richton Park, Monee, Peotone, Indian Oaks, Kankakee, Otto, Gilman. I am building the layout in three major phases; as of August '21 track and electrical for Phase 1 are running. The layout is point to point with staging at each end. Part of the layout is double decked. As per the prototype, part of the line is CTC while part is ABS. Currently signaling is not in place but is planned. There is a mixture of locals/turns, transfers, through trains, unit trains, yard jobs, and two Amtrak runs.
