Peoria also has Iowa Interstate's Peoria sub. It appears to not really be to busy, it runs pass one of the cross country courses that I ran at in High school. Out of the 5 times I've been here, I saw two freights, one at 7:00 lead by two Union Pacific Dash-9s "Ironically this was the first train I saw, so I thought it was a Union Pacific branch line." The next train was a freight around mid-night lead by Iowa interstate locomotives. The final train was an Iowa Interstate excursion train that must've been going to the depot. The line is pretty nice, it runs along the Illinois River, nice river houses, fields and small towns.
