Central Illinois Rails Volume 2: 1950s to 1970s
Central Illinois Rails Color Pictorial V.2: 1950s to 1970s by Richard R. Wallin and J. David Ingles. Following up their Central Illinois Rails Volume 1, well-know authors and photographers J. David Ingles and R. R. 'Dick' Wallin have again raided their extensive color-slide files for this 144-page Volume, which boasts over 400 color photographs and includes diesels from over 30 railroads. Extending their coverage to Galesburg, Illinois for more C&Q and Santa Fe scenes, and adding two Photo Galleries of Cabooses and Small-Town depots, the authors cover the broad expanse across central Illinois from just west of the Illinois River to the Indiana border. Most images are from the 'classic' 1960s; some are from the 1970s, and a few are from the late '40s, '50s, and early '80s. Passenger trains of 15 railroads - including motorcar 'doodlebugs' of 4 railroads, a unique B&O RDC excursion, and early 1970s Amtrak trains - are included. First-generation diesels again predominate, but steam of 7 locomotive types is seen on 5 Class 1 roads and an industrial pike. Also featured 1940s and 1950s action views and shop scenes of Illinois Terminal electrics. Also included is a two-page map of the region.
