About this title:

Synopsis: Detailed history of the Dayton, Springfield and Urbana Electric Railway, one of the early interurban railways in western Ohio that operated from Dayton to Springfield and then north to Urbana and the railroad town of Bellefontaine. Told in crisp, clear detail, the book tells of the financing, construction, and operation of the DS&U from 1895-1906, with coverage of the years between 1907-1938 when the Cincinnati and Lake Erie finally abandoned the last of the DS&U trackage. Brings life in turn-of the century Springfield, Dayton, Urbana and Bellefontaine to life as the trolley cars knit the communities together. Includes extensive chapter detailing the DS&U's roster and an excellent discussion of how direct current was provided and how the conversion to alternating current was made. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos, maps, drawings and schematic diagrams of the rolling stock. With extensive bibliography. Invaluable for the railroad modeler or historian as well as anyone interested in Ohio history. This is Book No. 6 in the Ohio Railroad Heritage Series. 108 pages with index.
