The Ex-Illinois Central in Wisconsin was a very unique railroad. Its construction was difficult because the terrain is hilly and very rocky. One of the most difficult things to overcome was finding a route to build the railroad. A tunnel had to be constructed between Monticello and Belleville. There are deep valleys and high overlooks that had to be dealt with.
Some of these photos show the surronding countryside.
