Remarks & Notes 
Steel wheels banging across steel rail is a fairly common occurrence at the diamond in Effingham Illinois, Though the sound of trains loudly banging across the diamond in Effingham have come to an end. As of the morning of 12/18/18 the diamond has been replaced with a full flange diamond that minimizes the beating that diamonds take of train wheels constantly running over the separated sections of track. In return the diamond last longer, maintenance is easier and the wear on equipment is lessened. Here a northbound Canadian National freight bangs its way across the double track CSX main.
