Where Rail and Service Connect, The Effingham Railroad

Effingham, Illinois is the crossing point of I-57 and I-70 and CN/IC and CSX. This rare transportation center in a fast growing community was an excellent opportunity for a short line railroad. The Effingham Railroad was built in 1999 and designed as an economic development tool to attract new industries to the area. The railroad has opened Effingham to a new class of prospects which rely heavily on transportation for their success.
