Ex- Illinois Central Main Line Rail Track in Monticello, Wisconsin.
Get your tickets here.
Tickets are only $3.00! Quite a value. Every ride was sold out for the day by noon.
Monticello was at the diamond between
the Illinois Central and the Milwaukee Road. Both railroads had
large depots in Monticello. The original Milwaukee Road depot
burned in about 1910 and was replaced by a smaller and much less
ornate depot. The Illinois Central depot was a standard two story
depot used in other IC towns in Wisconsin including Basco, Fitchburg,
Argyle, Martintown, Blanchardville, Dill, Hollandale, and Jonesdale.
The Martintown depot is the only remaining depot of this style.
A portion of the Basco depot has been remodeled into a house
just east of the right-of-way.
