Badger State Trail

I started the trail in Belleville Wisconsin and ran south to the State line of Illinois. This trail was cut through some really rough country to get those trains to run in them hills! Lots of rock was cut by hand to both build the tunnel and to go to the State line at a 3 % grade or less for those trains!
A marvellous feat of engineering! Here is a nice link to more info for this trail:
