A lock in the Hennepin Canal near Wyanet, IL

Craig Willett posted
East of the Q overhead at Wyanet, IL along the canal...1966.
Craig was taking a picture of the train, but I I'm glad he framed the photo to include the  Hennepin Canal lock. Writing about that canal has been on my "todo" list for at least a year.

The train is eastbound.

The comments in the posting talk about adding a connection in the northwest quadrant between the IAIS/Rock Island and the BNSF/CB&Q tracks. This would allow Amtrak service between the Quad Cities and Chicago to use the high-speed CB&Q route that is already used by other Amtrak trains.
