Work to begin on Chicago-Moline rail route - PioneerPress

Work to begin on Chicago-Moline rail route - PioneerPress

By passing Dekalb and the Northern Illinois University seems a mistake to me. But there's a whole lot more freight on the UP's mainline to contend with than on the old Rock Island and CB&Q lines they're proposing to use.

Still, without a University town on the line, I don't see the patronage here.  Naperville to Genesso, who is going to make that trip?

Hey Bill,

Live in the neighborhood of the proposed Wyanet exchange. Less expensive and more efficient to drive the 2+ hours to Chicago. Personally and no offense to you, Chicago offers me nothing except grand exposure to liberalism.

With or without a college town this seems like a complete waste of tax dollars...
