More train riders are expected on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, therefore Amtrak had added another route on its Chicago to Qunicy line with a stop in Galesburg. Amtrak says the busiest travel days are the Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after the holiday. The additional trains will make regular stops on the Illinois Zephyr and the Carl Sandburg routes. Other than Thanksgiving Day, morning trains typically have more available seats than those in the afternoon and evening.  Nationally, Amtrak carried a record 737,537 passengers during the 2012 Thanksgiving travel period, up 1.9 percent over the previous year and the prior record set in 2011.
