Home / Dispatch 13: A Celebration of Chicagoland Railroads: 1935-1971
1935 was the beginning of a railroad industry revolution. Gleaming stainless steel and colorful lightweight passenger trains replaced heavyweight dark painted cars. Diesel-electric locomotives totally revolutionized the industry. Documented by almost 300 photos of historic significance, many unpublished, this revolution is vividly portrayed in images and words. All major railroads serving Chicago and Peoria are included. A must addition to your library.
