Not everyday you'll see the President's train with the big heads run through Southern Illinois. So I decided to take the opportunity to catch the train down at Thomason (Mt. Vernon) with a little bit of time to spare thanks to the BN at Centralia. The train ended up coming out of the northeast and looped around at St. Louis and went east.
