The Peoria, Decatur & Evansville Railway

 Name:  Norveil (Siding), Illinois(elevation 588')
 Mile Post:  139.9
 Previous Station:  Toledo
 Next Station:  Greenup
 Description:  There were two sidings located at Norveil used for doubling, perhaps tripling, the northbound ruling grade on the Mattoon District that was located between here and the Embarrass River which was about a mile away.  The origin of the name is unclear, but there are families with that name in the general area.  By 1957, Norveil was still listed in the track chart, but only a telephone booth was at the location.  The telephone booth was still listed in 1970 and while it was gone in the 1978 track chart, oddly Norviel was still listed.
