Track Work to Cancel Lincoln Service, Send Texas Eagle Detouring Between Chicago and St. Louis

Track work on the Chicago- St. Louis corridor will result in Amtrak’s Lincoln Service being canceled between June 15 and 18 and the Texas Eagle making a detour move.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said all Lincoln Service trains will be canceled and bus service provided at all stations.

The Texas Eagle will be using a former Chicago & Eastern Illinois route via Tuscola, Illinois, that it has used in the past.

Passengers on the northbound Eagle traveling to intermediate stations between St. Louis and Chicago will disembark in St. Louis and travel by bus to their destination.

Amtrak said the Eagle is subject to delays of up to 45 during the detour.

The track work is being done to bring the top speed of the Chicago-St. Louis corridor up to 110 mph.
