I have the Last Train Through Peoria Heights on Flickr but thought you might be interested. The Bicycle and Walking Trail have replaced the Train Tracks. My wife and I can walk right off the back of our property directly onto the track. Many folks are taking advantage of the track daily, summer and winter, and someone is always walking by or zooming by on their bicycle. When I was a boy some of us would hop the train and go to school as the tracks ran right below the school in the center of Peoria Heights. We weren’t terribly bright at the time in our lives.
