Some Amtrak service to be curtailed during track upgrades

NORMAL, Ill. (AP) — Some Amtrak trains operating between Chicago and St. Louis will stop running while upgrades designed to enable trains to reach 110 mph get done. The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports that the affected Texas Eagle and Lincoln Service trains will halt starting April 3. The goal is to launch high-speed train service on much of the Chicago-St. Louis corridor later this year.
