There already is a train connecting Milwaukee and Chicago, 7 trips daily. And d train connectiing Chicago and Minneapolis via Milwaukee. So the large metropolitan areas in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota are already connected by rail.
More like a snap on Madison not being a large metropolitan area... which was part of the original context for my statement.
It seems that if Madison really wanted to play well with the bigger cities, it would think about becoming a connection point in the larger rail grid.
