Anyone Want to Board No. 393?

The conductor of Amtrak train No. 393 looks over the platform in Mattoon, Illinois, to see if he has any more boarding passengers.

The Chicago to Carbondale Illini has discharged all of its passengers at Mattoon and will be underway southbound very shortly.

Most of those who got off here — myself included — got on in Chicago.

The station was built by the Illinois Central and is now owned by the City of Mattoon. The rails are now owned by Canadian National.
