Wenona to Lacon


Map submitted by Mike Fromholt.

This was a branch of the former Gulf Mobile and Ohio Railroad. There was another branch from this that went to wasbhington. For a while in the early 1980's there was a shortline Washington Metamora and Streator, but it is gone now. There was a GE 70 ton locomotive operating this line.

Hi, The WM&S was my railroad. We never managed to cut a deal with ICG. Our locomotive was a Whitcomb 65 tonner. We also had a 16 ton Plymouth.
