I will worked there when I was in High School. That was back in 2000-2001. I loved that job, the staff that I had to deal with were very nice and I enjoyed working there. I live in Delaware now and we do not even have a LJS. RIP LJS of Quincy. You will be missed.

But this was selective enforcement. Shouldn't we be arresting everyone for every violation in every crack and crevice of the city, county, and state. No matter the cost.

Maybe they should try letting people, business's and organizations know about the survey. As a 25 year old business I have received nothing regarding GREDF but that's not unusual.

Amtrak Quincy-to-Chicago ridership up 4 percent

1 year, 11 months ago by Bob Gough

More than 265,000 passengers took the Illinois Zephyr and Carl Sandburg

From sj-r.com:

Extra equipment can’t come soon enough for Amtrak if Illinois passenger trends reported Wednesday continue.

The carrier reported more than 675,000 passengers rode Lincoln Service trains between Chicago and St. Louis in the federal fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, an 11 percent increase and a record for the route.

Passenger numbers also increased on the Chicago-Carbondale and Chicago-Quincy lines.

Amtrak ridership in Illinois for federal fiscal year ended Sept. 30 and percentage increase from prior year:

* Lincoln Service, Chicago-St. Louis: 675,295; 11 percent

* Illini & Saluki, Chicago-Carbondale: 374,268; 5 percent

* Illinois Zephyr & Carl Sandburg, Chicago-Quincy: 265,307; 4 percent

* Texas Eagle, San Antonio, Texas-Chicago: 337,973; 12.8 percent

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said growth has been accommodated up to now by refurbishing old passenger cars and returning them to service, but that no more are available.

“We do not have the capacity in the current fleet to grow ridership dramatically,” said Magliari.

New equipment is on order, including additional engines and passenger cars, but delivery is not expected for at least two years.
