Headquartered in Chicago, the Illinois Central Railroad was known as the "Main Line of Mid-America," as it was a major railroad cutting through the middle section of the United States with two major routes: the Main Line, which ran south out of Chicago toward New Orleans, and the Western Lines, which ran west toward Iowa. The Illinois Central Railroad had eight major freight yards in Chicago, which in 1937 handled nearly two million freight cars. It was also well known for its passenger service and operated some of the finest passenger trains: the Green Diamond, the all-Pullman Panama Limited, and the City of New Orleans. Chicago and the Illinois Central Railroad covers the railroad's operations within the city of Chicago, plus the outlying suburbs, from the late 1800s to 1960. It explores, through vintage photographs, the passenger and freight trains, suburban trains, locomotives, shops and repair facilities, and people that made the railroad function.

The Indiana Rail Road Companyis a story of extraordinary success among the scores of independent short line and regional railroads spawned in the wake of railroad deregulation. Christopher Rund chronicles the development of the company from its origins as part of America's first land grant railroad, the Illinois Central, through the political and financial juggling required by entrepreneur Tom Hoback to purchase the line when it fell into disrepair. Reborn as a robust, profitable carrier, the INRD has become a model for the new American regional railroad. This revised edition, with a new foreword by acclaimed author Fred Frailey and four new chapters, brings readers up to date on Tom Hoback's amazing railroad adventure.

In 1836, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas agreed on one thing: Illinois needed railroads. Over the next fifty years, the state became the nation’s railroad hub, with Chicago at its center. Speculators, greed, growth, and regulation followed as the railroad industry consumed unprecedented amounts of capital and labor. A nationwide market resulted, and the Windy City became the site of opportunities and challenges that remain to this day. In this first-of-its-kind history, full of entertaining anecdotes and colorful characters, Simon Cordery describes the explosive growth of Illinois railroads and its impact on America. Cordery shows how railroading in Illinois influenced railroad financing, the creation of a national economy, and government regulation of business. Cordery's masterful chronicle of rail development in Illinois from 1837 to 2010 reveals how the state’s expanding railroads became the foundation of the nation’s rail network.

What is it like growing up in America? The answer depends partly on the time and place. More specifically, what was it like growing up in a mid-America Minnesota around mid-20th century? This book provides an answer to the question. Minnesota Boy: Growing Up in Mid-America, Mid-20th Century is a new edition and a new title for a book that Lee Foster wrote and photographed in the late 1960s. The book was first published in 1970 and titled Just 25 Cents and Three Wheaties Boxtops. Lee was studying American Literature and beginning his writing career as a graduate student at Stanford at the time. His mentor, Wallace Stegner, liked the book and assisted him in getting an agent and publisher. This book is a collection of memories. It is something other than essays forming a memoir. It attempts to approximate the language, conversation, thought, images, and feelings of the era. The goal is to capture the essence and spirit of growing up in a Minnesota America of that era. As Lee Foster wrote in the 1970 edition: "The boy often dreamed of where his life would roam as a man. When he became a man, who had lived 26 years on the planet, he looked back on his life and created a dream, not unlike his earlier dreams of the future. Memories of his times returned, some as recent as a year ago, some as dimly distant as 20 years past, often bursting forth gratuitously, always appearing in an order that was true to a chronology of the spirit, a truth of textures and shadings and fragile moments. He realized, as the pleasures of his re-creation stretched into months, that the story belonged less to himself than to a part of his generation. Phrases, objects, and people, as they passed before him, spoke their imprisoned moments of the past, which, like a thousand genies within bottles, lay always present, but definitely mute, waiting for their proper decoders, waiting for those singers of songs who reach for the magic words and unlock fragments of all our secrets." "Minnesota Boy is a poetic slice of Americana" -Jim Gebbie "A brilliant memoir portrait, masterful writing, with significant historical value" - Ann F. Purcell
