How do I go about learning the name, if any, of the UP division that passes by my house? I live in Peoria, IL. I've spent quite a bit of time on the UP website and know trains start/end in the Greater Chicago area and the Greater St. Louis area. Just wondering how the UP names or refers to segments or divisions of trackage.

Thanks!

Dennis,
I have a UP employee timetable from Oct 1995 that shows Peoria on the Peoria Sub of the Iowa Service Unit(what UP calls their divisions).I don't know if it's the same now or not.Updated timetables are easy to find.If you get Trains magazine,there are several ads for timetables for sale.

Have a good one.

Thanks, Bill. Appreciate the reply and the info on the name and the tip on timetables.

Small world. I lived in Marion for ten years before we moved outside of CR and near Mt. Vernon where I graduated high school.

Thanks again!

Hello Dennis,
Yes it is a small world!I've lived in this area for the last 13 years,5 of those here in Marion.We just purchased the house that we've been renting those past 5.So now I have a 13 year old ranch style house with a beautiful basement all to myself.I need to frame and insulate the basement walls and then start work on 2 layouts,an HO C&NW for my son and an O scale for me.

Have a good one.
