Iowa Interstate's Peoria Rocket trundles past the restored Rock Island depot, home to the Chillicothe Historical Society in Chillicothe, Illinois. Hard to imagine this scene 35 years ago, when passenger service still existed in the form of the Peoria Rocket, where the local train gets its nickname. Two GEVO's bracket two GP38-2's on the way to Peoria for a Cedar Rapids Iowa bound coal train.
