Crab Orchard and Egyptian Railway

The Crab Orchard and Egyptian Railway started in 1971 after the Illinois Central and Gulf started to abandon some lines in Southern Illinois. It was originally started as a tourist railroad, before moving to a freight carrier. In 2012 American Rail Heritage sold the railroad to Progressive Rail Incorportated.
