Leithton, IL 8-11-88. After operating on the WC from Duplainville, WI, to Leithton, a detouring Amtrak #8 is backing onto the J. Once on the J's Western Sub main, the train will go compass east / timetable west to Rondout, and eventually CUS. THe Builder detoured for 2 days, but the following day it stayed on the WC all the way to B12. I sill have a hard time imagining those Superliners creaking around that sharp S curve at B12.
