The Rutland, Toluca & Northern Railroad.

The reason for the listing of this railroad on this site is because Rutland is in La Salle County.  The history of this railroad is all laid out at another website. See the "Toluca, Marquette & Northern" link on my links page and click there to get a fantastic history lesson of this little railroad that went from Rutland to Granville.
 Below is a picture of the R. T. & N. locomotive no. 223 at Granville.
