The Soo Line in Minnesota by John C. Luecke and Paul R. Spyhalski. The Soo Line was built to break the monopolies of the Hill Roads, the Northern Pacific Railroad and Great Northern Railway in northern Minnesota. The Soo Line as a late arrival on the Minnesota railroad scene had to be lean, mean and innovative in its quest to secure a place amid its more powerful and well-established rivals. It was the classic story of David facing off against Goliath With 320 pages, 300 photographs and over 50 maps and diagrams, The Soo Line in Minnesota illustrates the rich history of this classic northern Minnesota railroad. From the main lines to Chicago, Winnipeg, Sault Ste. Marie and the Dakotas, to the secondary lines that accessed the Twin Ports and Cuyuna Iron Ore Range, the book offers an in-depth written and visual history of the Soo Line in Minnesota from its beginning to its takeover by the Canadian Pacific.
