Illinois Coal industry, was: IC "Chiselled Side" Offset Twins (UNCLASSIFIED)

Southeastern Wyoming contains the Medicine Bow Range, Vedauwoo, Sherman Hill
and portions of other high plains mountains; all beautiful and a spectacular
setting for RR action. Southwestern Wyoming is "challenged" for "pretty"
scenery, but has some interesting RR backdrops, particularly as it approaches
the long drop into Utah. I wish I could have seen it while it was still in

I don't think too many would call southeastern WY "pretty".

Now, now Mike. Speak for yourself! Maybe it's because I now live in the
Texas High Plains, but southeastern Wyoming is beautiful! All of Wyoming is
beautiful, it simply depends on your perspective. Following a FtW&D
freight north out of Cheyenne to Chugwater or a UP train over Sherman only
sweetens the deal.
