Chicago, Milwaukee & Gary Railway – CM&G – The Gary Line

 

Chicago, Milwaukee & Gary Railway – The Gary Line

I saw several small connections on the MILW on the Historical Development map including a couple of branches between Joliet and Delmar as well as Dekalb to the southern mainline. In researching these, I came across the Abandoned Rails website. So, all that I know about this line came from http://www.abandonedrails.com/Gary_Line Thanks for the lesson and I hope I added to your work well.

Notice the gap between Joliet and Aurora. The CMG acquired trackage rights between these areas by way of the EJ&E
