Chicago Stations & Trains
By John Kelly   Chicago Stations

No other American city had such a fascinating group of railroad passenger stations as Chicago. This book highlights Chicago’s six major railroad stations and the trains that served them. Included are Dearborn Station, Grand Central Station, Central Station, La Salle Street Station, NorthWestern Station and Union Station. During the heyday of passenger trains, Chicago was the undisputed rail center of the United States, and its railroad stations were the gates to everywhere. Historic photographs feature name trains like Super Chief, Capitol Limited, City of New Orleans, 20th Century Limited, Broadway Limited, California Zephyr, Hiawatha, 400 and City of Denver. Each station had its own unique architecture with a maze of tracks, platforms and multicolored passenger trains. Included are maps, station drawings, travel brochures and promotional advertising. Softcover, 128 pages, 136 black & white photos, 10 x 8 1/2”.
