Looking Back to 1915: Not Really the Woodstock-Sycamore Interurban Railway

From the Sept. 9, 2015, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

"Although the word Woodstock is part of the name of that railroad, the Woodstock-Sycamore Interurban railway does not extend to Woodstock according to a statement of T.E. Ryan, the manager, who recently interviewed the citizens of Woodstock, the line is not likely to extend to that city-- at least for some time, and instead effort will be made to extend it to Havana."

Havana, Illinois, is a city about 100 miles southwest of Sycamore.  I wasn't sure where it was so had to look it up.
