  • A Railroad Atlas of the United States in 1946 Volume 4 Illinois, Wisconsin & Upper Michigan (Carpenter)

In A Railroad Atlas of the United States in 1946, Richard C. Carpenter provides a unique record of this not-so-distant time, when travelling out of town meant, for most Americans, taking the train. The fourth volume in this acclaimed series illustrates in stunning detail the rail system in Illinois, Wisconsin, and upper Michigan. Charting not only the exact direction and distance of each rail line, Carpenter also includes with precision the railroad’s operational details: both existing and long-since-demolished signal towers, interlockings, passenger stations, major rail yards, repair shops, crew change points, trackage rights and joint operations, and other rarely mapped, rail-specific sites. The book's unique format allows easy cross-referencing with U.S. Geological Survey maps and DeLorme state road atlases. Also highlighted are rivers, lakes, and state and county boundaries, as well as the mileposts for every line. 2011 The John Hopkins University Press. Hardcover. Green cloth boards. VG, rear board bumped. 307pp.  OTHER VOLUMES (1 2 3) also available.  4B-G1TW-XU08
