Amtrak adds extra Thanksgiving train route between Princeton and Chicago

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2016

Are you headed to Chicago for Thanksgiving but dread the drive? You can always ride the rails.

Amtrak is adding an extra route from Princeton and Mendota to Union Station to handle the expected large number of holiday travelers. The day before Thanksgiving, one extra afternoon train that will hit Princeton a little after 3 o’clock and Mendota around 3:30 can take you to Chicago. An extra afternoon train has also been added to get you back home on Sunday after Thanksgiving from the city to the Illinois Valley.

The busiest travel days for Amtrak are the Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
