The tracks still remain in Sheboygan Falls and Kohler, however they are heavily abandoned. Wisconsin and Southern owns the abandoned tracks, while Union Pacific owns the small stubline to Kohler. It would be nice if they could reactivate the line in Kohler, because there are a set of Wigwags in Kohler that I would love to see active.

Also, the tracks through Plymouth are used by Wisconsin and Southern twice a week. On Google maps, you can see the siding where the original line was. The line is easily traceable from Plymouth to Kohler, but less from Plymouth to Fond du Lac.
The right of way is owned by the State of Wisconsin, with operating rights granted to WSOR. The line from Plymouth to Kohler is currently being completely rebuilt, expected to be finished this fall. It was never abandoned. Just out of service.
As of 2015, WSOR took full responsibility for the old Milwaukee Road line in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Union Pacific still had the R.O.W. into Kohler & Sheboygan Falls. WSOR's Headquarters is in Madison. The whole line between Kohler and Plymouth had to be reestablished by W.D.O.T. standards to sustain proper speed and weight capabilities. Plymouth was in shambles to begin with. It was last used by CNW. WSOR is owned by WATCO out of Kansas. It operates Wisconsin's old Chicago,Milwaukee,St.Paul & Pacific railroad trackage. For more information on this (Wikipedia.org ) WSOR. Look on YouTube for the ground breaking and some other footage.
