Map submitted by Mike Fromholt.

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

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.

Hello - Mr. Howard. I'm trying to obtain more information on the WM&S Railroad and land ownership adjacent to our property in Lacon, IL. Would it be possible for you to contact me through this site?

Thank you.
