There were:1) The Grayville and Mattoon;2) The Decatur, Mattoon and Southern;3) The Illinois Midland. No. 1 ran on to Evansville, No. 2 ran to Decatur via Sullivan, and No. 3 runs from Terre Haute to Peoria,There was a branch running from Decatur to Paris, and this was known as the Paris and Decatur Railroad.I believe this was the only part which actually crossed Coles County via Oakland Township.
