Scandinavia: A Railroad Hub
This image from around 1910 illustrates why Scandinavia was a railroad center. The passenger train on the left has just arrived from Iola. After the Green Bay and Western passenger train sitting on the mainline continues its westward journey, the I&N will reposition itself in front of the depot to drop off, and take on, freight and passengers. It will then begin its 4.7 mile return trip backwards to Iola. The Waupaca-Green Bay train shown on the right is ready to make the 9.8 mile trip south to Waupaca.
