We've been told that the last car is the roughest ride. There were times that I thought the train was going to leave the tracks (no pun intended). They're increasing the speed limit by 30 MPH between Joliet and Springfield. The speed limit will now be 110 MPH. UP has fixed up the tracks and made the crossing gates cover the whole road. They are also talking about placing nets by the crossing to prevent cars from going around the gates. The superliners are as smooth as can be.
