A northern Illinois farmer pushing back against a proposed railroad project.
If approved, the Great Lakes Basin line would run within ten feet within Tammy Wakeley’s free stall barn in Winnebago County.
Wakeley says she’s frustrated because it could take the Surface Transportation Board several years to make a final decision. She also would have liked to see more time for public input on the issue.
The farm Wakeley’s own dates back to 1884.
