For what it's worth, I got a chance to lay down some tracks through IL recently. I took the opportunity to try and extend the OTC to something that you guys have laid out. BigDogs was the most convenient. This ain't polished by any means, but the track logs are legit. The run along the levee on the east side of Ol' Miss is pretty nice. The section through Hamilton and Wayne Counties is pretty nice also. Zig Zagging between the lakes is mostly paved. I also collected a detour around Evansville, and I'm still not satisfied. I think that section is going to have to run up into Gibson County for any satisfaction.
