Dates:10/8/1989 - 10/31/2018
Album Info:Most of the Chicago & Northwestern's lines in and around Wisconsin's capital city are a shell of their former selves thanks to abandonments by C&NW itself and later Union Pacific. WSOR leases from UP several branches that are stubs of these former main lines; to Reedsburg, Cottage Grove, and industries on the south side, and gamely keeps them alive. The former C&NW Monona Yard between E. Johnson Street and Commercial Avenue serves as the base of Madison area operations.
