Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Interurban Trains to Chicago follows Samuel Insull's Great Chicago Systems, three superb interurban routes powered by electric traction that carried passengers from the north, west and southwest into downtown Chicago. They were the Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad, Chicago South Shore and South Bend Railroad, and the Chicago Aurora and Elgin Railroad. Coverage includes the Skokie Valley Route, South Shore Lines and Sunset Lines. Vintage photographs, timetables and poster advertising are featured.
