About this title


Fascinating and comprehensive history of railroads in Chicago. Covers the early days before the railroads when there were only rough roads into Ft. Dearborn, the coming of the first railroad (the Galena & Chicago Union), the explosive growth of the railroads and the economic boom they created, the Pullman Strike, the history, architecture and character of each station, the freight industry, the interurban years, the growth of mass transit, and the struggles as railroads decayed, followed by the return of passenger traffic on Amtrak and the modernization spurred by deregulation and mergers. Includes charts that explain the complicated network of Chicago's interurbans, passenger railroad terminals, major freight yards, and switching, transfer and terminal railroads. Illustrated with both vintage and modern black and white photos. With bibliography. 338 pages with index.
