Current flooding will impact the Dow chemical plant in Midland, Illinois. I found the text below saying the tracks were in rough shape.

Did Dow ever upgrade their track?

If they didn't, the track sure will need some TLC after the expected 38 feet of water hits!


The train is headed for Dow Chemical in Midland and its cars are loaded with hazardous chemicals - some so toxic a bucketful could wipe out a neighborhood, local fire officials say.

Link and others in the area call it the "Death Train" due to its toxic cargo, and they say the tracks it rides on have fallen into disrepair in recent years, with rotted ties, missing or loose spikes and wavy rails.

Railroad officials say the tracks are safe, and that the train has been running through the area since 1987 with no derailments.

A different train carrying Dow Chemical and Dow Corning cargo derailed in Freeland in 1989, causing a widespread evacuation but no deaths
