If you miss riding the "little train that could"...this beautiful volume will make you homesick!
Well-written, beautifully illustrated. A real classic. I have this book, myself. I sent a copy to someone who used to live here as a housewarming gift, and they loved it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A Nostalgic Review of South Shore Train Line History in Northern Indiana and Chicago
Two Indiana University Professors provide factual information that evokes memories of days gone by in this publication depicted by nostalgic, colorful posters of the South Shore Train Line. These advertising posters of yesteryear provide key details of past society and its connection to this mode of transportation that provided easier travel to and from the big city of Chicago and Northern Indiana as far east as Notre Dame in South Bend. Travels to Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Lake Michigan is a special part of the history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
