Layout Construction Photos - City of Willis

The City of Willis is along the north wall of the room and will feature the business district along Railroad Avenue in downtown Willis.  The Illinois Central line between Baton Rouge and Vicksburg will be running through, and the I.C. will have a depot on the avenue.  There will be an interchange track between the I.C. and the Louisiana Central's Willis yard, located on the perpendicular peninsula connected to this area.  The L.C. yard is covered on the Willis Yard page.
