An Amtrak crew member is picking up the step box and will soon board the northbound Illini at Homewood, Illinois, as it departs for its final stop at Chicago Union Station. The date is Aug. 31, 1996.
Amtrak does not carry passengers from Homewood to Chicago except when they are connecting there with other Amtrak trains.
Homewood is shown as a discharge only station for the northbound Illini.
Some passengers who disembarked here are still lingering on the platform before walking down a stairway to a tunnel that leads to the station.
