I have a friend who lives in Sebring and have been there
a couple of times. The curved windows and the tracks that
are near the station are good clues. The fireplace and
the bright yellow walls are also clues.

Don't think so. I haven't seen the bus stop somewhere in Nebraska or Colorado (on the CZ route) that I saw last November.

Also, this station does not currently serve Amtrak. Shouldn't be too hard though.

Yeah, this, Chilliochte, and the other Galesburg station lost service in 1996 when it was rerouted.

I think it is Streator, IL.

That's correct! What does the microwave communications tower have to do with it?
