Synopsis: From the mid-1940's to the mid-1960's, the Illinois Central Railroad billed itself as the "Main Line of Mid-America". This slogan was entirely appropriate, for the IC slashed a wide path through the center core of the United States, beginning at Chicago in the Midwest and extending south to New Orleans in the deep South. Illinois Central's influence was widespread and long lasting ~from the foreward
