Janesville, Wisconsin
photo album – p.2

Janesville, Wisconsin is served by three railroads, Union Pacific, Wisconsin & Southern, and Iowa Chicago & Eastern.  UP runs on former Chicago & North Western tracks, while both WSOR and ICE run on former Milwaukee Road/Soo Line trackage.  WSOR is the major player in town, with a line to Milton Jct. on the north, Monroe on the west, and Chicago on the east, as well as their roundhouse at Five Points.  Union Pacific's line runs southeast-northwest through town as far as Evansville, and the major customer in Janesville, General Motors, is served by UP.  UP also has a short branch to the north of town to serve a grain elevator.  ICE's presence in town is the north end of their branchline into Wisconsin, though they do switch a few customers in Janesville.  There's almost always something going on somewhere on the rails in Janesville!
