A Picture Tribute to the Ex-Illinois Central Railroad Line

Page Four

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 surrounding countryside.
