Company History: This 7 mile line linking their namesake towns in Wisconsin was the result of a 1978 spinoff from Chicago & North Western. The party lasted just eight years. They lost the lease in 1985 and the line was abandoned. The RSC2u locomotive is of Milwaukee Road heritage (by way of a short stint on the Kettle Moraine Railway.) It was Milwaukee Road that lowered the short hood and turned the cab around, making the short hood the front. B&FJ had a modest fleet of TOFC trailers that really got around. That might be where you’ve heard the name before.
