Illinois Central Railroad 1854-1960 - Photo Archive

Epitomized in song and story, the Illinois Central was arguably the most interesting and colourful railroad in America. Begun in 1851, the IC was the first land grant railroad in the United States. While other railroads ran east and west, the IC ran north and south, so when the Civil War began the IC was able to move 30% of all war material, supplies and troops to the battlegrounds of the south.

This book of IC locomotives, depots and memorabilia dating from 1875 to 1970 gives readers an intimate look at the railroad that called itself the Mainline of Mid America.

Illinois Railroads

The Midwestern state of Illinois, known as the Prairie State, is not known for its varied topography, but this mostly flat land was indeed very conducive to the construction of railroads. It is located at a place where east meets west as railroads interchange huge amounts of traffic at Chicago, the railroad capital of the nation.
Because it hosts smaller industrial cities and huge agricultural areas in the northern and central parts of the state, combined with coal, petroleum and other natural resources in the south, it's no surprise that today the 'Land of Lincoln' is criss-crossed by 7,151 miles of rail lines.
Illinois is also at the centre of the nation's rail network, and an incredible variety of railroad companies can be seen traversing the state.

Through a collection of incredible colour photos, Mike Danneman takes the reader on a tour of the railroads of Illinois - from Chicago to Chester, and from the tunnel at East Dubuque to the high bridge at Metropolis.

Chicago Stations & Trains - Photo Archive

No other American city has had such a fascinating group of railroad passenger stations as Chicago. This book highlights Chicago's six major railroad stations and the trains that served them.
Included are Dearborn Station, Grand Central Station, Central Station, La Salle Street Station, North Western Station, and Union Station. During the heyday of passenger trains, Chicago was the undisputed rail centre of the United States and its railroad stations were the gateway to anywhere and everywhere.
Chicago's railroad stations featured superb architecture with marble floors and staircases, while restaurants, newsstands and shops filled the concourse areas. Steel latticework beams helped support glass-domed roofs and public address systems echoed train in formation throughout the high-ceiling stations.

Huge station clocks loomed above the brass and neon train bulletin boards that listed ''On Time'' trains. Beyond the boarding gates, the constant parade of trains sounded with clanging bells and rumbling steel wheels. Historic photographs feature name trains like Super Chief, Capitol Limited, 20th Century Limited, Broadway Limited, California Zephyr, Hiawatha, 400, and City of Denver. Included are maps, station drawings, timetables and promotional advertising.
