Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Volume 1 The Northern Division DVD 4 of 5 (1)
The year is 1980 and the ailing Milwaukee Road has finished shedding thousands of miles of non-profitable secondary lines to evade falling into the history books forever. Unfortunately, that would come 5 years later. From the thousands of miles shed some would never see a train again. However, there were a few that had enough business to hold their own. One of those lines was the former Milwaukee Road's Northern Division in Wisconsin, which consisted of 147 miles of railroad stretching from North Milwaukee to Horicon. Also, lines branching west to Cambria and north to Oshkosh and the segment going west from Brandon to Markesan. This whole division was on a list for abandonment since 1977 and with help of the Southwest Wisconsin Rail Users and Development Association; a new railroad was born on April 29th, 1980. From rags to riches we bring you the Wisconsin & Southern!
