3,429, is in the far northwest side
of the State of Illinois. Located in Jo
Daviess County, Galena is a very historic city with
85% of the building's in its downtown area
(including the Galena train depot) listed in the
National Register of Historic Places.
Additionally, Galena hosts more than one million
visitors annually. Due to this, Galena will
most likely draw a large demand of rail passengers
visiting from Chicago and the suburbs on weekends.
It is anticipated that
the historic Galena depot will serve as the station
for the city. The depot is currently being
used as a visitor information center.
Platforms would likely need to be upgraded for
resumption of the Black Hawk service.
