9780916374549: Forty Feet Below: The Story of Chicago's Freight Tunnels (Interurbans special)

Fascinating history of the two-foot railway that ran beneath the commercial buildings of the Chicago Loop. Constructed to relieve surface congestion, the Chicago Tunnel Co. chugged on until 1959 when lack of business closed the system. (In 1992, it again made headlines when it was flooded and the resulting damage closed the Loop for several weeks.) This Interurbans Special describes the construction, operation and financial challenges of the company. With detailed fold-out map in the back. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and schematic diagrams. 82 pages with index.
