I'm thinking about taking the 6th of September of from work to follow and watch the Berk on it's trip to Decatur Illinois. I'd like to know the route it's going to take from Fort Wayne to Decatur? Rich do you have this information yet or do you know where I can get it? Thanks!

I'm also looking forward to seeing the Wabash NS Heritage unit. I'm assuming it will be behind the 765 on this deadhead run?

No stops between Decatur and St. Louis. It's only about 120 miles.


We decided to leave a day early so the Illinois Division would have enough time to get the train ready during the day on Friday.
