All-color book on the largest north-south railroad in the U.S.! Filled with 350 color photos, and featuring easy-to-see 10 x 11" size!


Illinois Central: Main Line of Mid-America is a spectacular display of all-color photos of the first land grant railroad. This 10x11" 128-page hardbound book features a laminated cover and is bursting with beautiful photos of steam locomotives beginning with the 2-4-4T, the 0-6-0 and 0-8-0 switchers, the 2-8-2 Mikado workhorses, the 4-8-2 heavy haulers, and some odd locomotives such as the 0-8-2 and 0-10-0s, as well as many others.


This exciting book also features diesels including switchers, black and white Geeps, beautiful orange, brown and yellow E passenger units, and the later model GP-20s and GP-35s.


Coaches, diners, business cars and Pullman sleepers comprise the fine IC passenger equipment. Also included is suburban electric equipment from both the old era of the Pullman olive-green days and the sleek new bi-level cars. Scenes from on-line towns such as Chicago, St. Louis, Paducah, Clinton, Dubuque, Central City and Centralia are highlighted in a special section called "on the Property."


The glossy enameled text paper of this large format book provides excellent reproduction.
