BRODHEAD - It's hard to imagine now in this era of car travel, but at one time a passenger train ran between Brodhead and Monroe. Paul Douglas remembers taking that train as a kid in the early 1960s. Along the way, he and his friends kept themselves entertained by singing "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall."
