The abandoned railroad route between Grundy County and Will County was once operated in Illinois by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway and the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad.

Docket Number: 18676 Date: 9/30/1954 Section: 5 & 1
App. of The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company for authority to acquire trackage rights over certain tracks of Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad Company in Grundy County, Illinois and for permission to Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad Company and to The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company to abandon operation of certain trackage including removal of portions of such trackage in Grundy and Will Counties, Illinois.

I wonder if this is referring to the tracks between the north side of Gardner, ILL at the Mazon River, entering Coal City, IL? That would have connected the GM&O at the south and the AT&SF to the north.

I believe that was the old Kankakee & Seneca Railroad.
