The Woodstock and Sycamore Traction Company-- Part 1

From Wikipedia.

Back in April, in a Looking Back post I wrote that John Seymour, a contractor who constructed the Woodstock-Sycamore Traction Line was injured along with three men on a gasoline section car near Genoa.  on March 24, 1915.

The Woodstock and Sycamore Traction Company was a short-lived  interurban railroad that ran from 1911 to 1918 between Sycamore and Marengo.  It never did reach Woodstock as it planned.

The headquarters and repair shop were in Genoa, about half-way between Sycamore and Marengo.
