From the March 24, 2015, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Il.) "Looking Back."
John Seymour, contractor who constructed the Woodstock-Sycamore Traction Line, which operates between Sycamore and Marengo, was injured along with three men who accompanied him on a gasoline section car at a point two miles south of Genoa on Saturday.
Traction lines were like railroads and were popular before the advent of the automobile and good roads.
Happy Fiftieth Anniversary Liz
