Bnsf & M&tl Railroads,Canton & Farmington,Illinois

Classification: Query
I am looking for information On two railroads in Fulton County,Illinois as i'm having a hard time finding anything on the web about either one.

Both are now abandoned. The bnsf is abandoned from Farmington down to Canton which I wonder when this happened,why & when the last time a train traveled this route & if there is any hope of it ever reopening & some history on it.

The other is about a former railroad in Farmington that has been recently torn out called the Minneapolis & St.Louis railroad later the C&NW. I am wondering the same as with the Canton railroad as to what happened to it. My dad worked at a coal mine near trivoli & it had a spur to it. Any help at all is appriciated.
