Chicagoland Commuter Railroads

Commuter Train Services have been an important part of the Chicago Metro area for well over 100 years. Passenger service could not be discontinued without severe economic impact on the entire Chicago area. The Metra Commuter Rail Service and the Indiana Commuter Transportation District (South Shore) services have provided a crucial life line for the many Chicago-suburban corridors. This book reviews commuter services offered in the Chicago area on former Chicago & NorthWestern, Milwaukee Road, South Shore, Illinois Central, Rock Island, Burlington, Wabash, Gulf, Mobile and Ohio, New York Central, Pennsylvania Railroad lines, Metra, NICTD and Amtrak. Softcover, 8 1/2 x 11, 128 pages, 40 color and 250 b/w photos.
