The Effingham Railroad has started construction on a new 9,000-square-foot facility in Effingham, Illinois.

The new building will provide more efficient office and shop space for the short line's staff, according to a post in The Short Line Connection newsletter published by the Illinois Western and Effingham railroads. The building's shop space is designed to accommodate a 90-foot flat car.

Construction is slated to wrap up later this fall.

"We are excited about our growth and the opportunities the new location will provide," Effingham Railroad officials wrote in the newsletter.
