Indiana Railroad / The Magic Interurban – George K. Bradley
Fascinating and handsomely done history of the Indiana Railroad, once the country’s longest interurban railway and an important part of Samuel Insull’s empire. Traces the company’s history from the scattered lines that were merged to become the IR, its expansion and glory years with the highspeeds, its struggles to remain financially viable, the strike of 1937 and the eventual bankruptcy that led to its sale and transition to bus service. Also covers its freight service including the isolated lines to the Binkley Mine, the Western Indiana Gravel Co., and the Southern Indiana Railway. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and a small color section. With maps, public and employee timetables, bibliography and index
