Didn't even know about that.   Cool...tho those cities are at least 2 hours away at the closest for me.  I guess the action is where it is...

Thanks.

Are you talking about the articles Trains used to publish called Trackside Guides? If you are, then no, none were done on WI. I believe the only ones they did were Cincinatti, Portland and Minneapolis. I wish they would've done more because they were a great source of information and seemed to be very accurate regarding railroad operations. The only types of articles they seem to do now are about tourist and steam railroads, and nothing about modern day freight railroad oprerations. Sad [:(]
