Bicentennial Celebration: Rails that Linked the Land of Lincoln
Author-historians and lecturers, Gerry and Janet Souter tell the story of the Illinois railroads—from leaky, steam-driven teakettles to high speed signature passenger trains hurtling from Chicago to Springfield. It’s a fun journey of winners and losers, of grit and gumption serving transportation and commerce, agriculture and industry. Villages became towns and towns became cities.
