Overview

After almost a quarter of a century, Monon: The Hoosier Line is back in print in a revised second edition featuring an updated Epilogue, additional photographs, and a new Afterword by Frank Van Bree, President of the Monon Railroad Historical-Technical Society, Inc.

Many railroads served the state, but the Monon was Indiana’s own. If you wanted to travel from Delphi to Broad Ripple, or from Gosport to Smithville, you took the Monon. The self-proclaimed "Hoosier Line" celebrated its heritage by naming its flagship passenger train The Hoosier, featuring Indiana cooking in the dining cars and offering homespun service. Monon celebrates the history of this magnificent railroad, from its inception in 1847 as the New Albany & Salem Rail Road, then as the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago, to its merger in 1970 with the L&N, and beyond. The informative text is enhanced by 258 black-and-white illustrations and a special color insert, "The Monon in Color," with 17 additional photographs.
