RFMX 710043
Title:  RFMX 710043
Description:  Covered hoppers set on a siding behind the Kohl Center on Wisconsin and Southern's line through Madison which extends to Prairies du Chien. This was part of the first line across the state connecting Milwaukee with the Mississippi River. The line here now runs through the University of Wisconsin campus, and is fairly active. The activity is not close to what it was historically, but it should be in use for the foreseeable future.

RFMX 464803
Title:  RFMX 464803
Description:  Covered hoppers set along the former Milwaukee Road right of way in Madison. The line runs through the University of Wisconsin campus, and at this point is behind the Kohl Center. The Kohl Center is home of the Wisconsin Badger basketball and hockey programs. The area was once home of a Milwaukee Road yard. The bridge indicated by the sign to the right of the right of way is for a pedestrian underpass which allows the UW students, among others, pass safely under the right of way.
