Amtrak is giving travelers in Illinois more options on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, adding service on the Chicago-to-Quincy corridor that has stops in Galesburg and Macomb.
Rail officials announced Monday they're adding a train leaving Quincy at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, and a train leaving Chicago at 11:30 a.m. that day. The additional trains will make regular stops on the routes known as the Illinois Zephyr and the Carl Sandburg.
