G&GE RR

The Galesburg & Great Eastern was a railroad which operated in Knox County, Illinois in the United States. Knox County is located in western Illinois, about 180 miles southwest from Chicago.

This interesting railroad ran until the early 1960's, hauling coal from a mine located at Victoria, Illinois to Wataga, Illinois, a distance of ten miles (16 kilometers). Although early plans indicated that the road would extend on to Galesburg (a major railroad center nine miles away), ultimately, the railroad would go there in name only.
