The Milwaukee Road (MBI Railroad Color History)
The Milwaukee Road (MBI Railroad Color
The true grit and glory days of one of America's greatest railroads come to dramatic life in this full-scale illustrated history by industry veteran Tom Murray. Words and pictures carry readers across the vast tracts of land and time traversed by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific-better known to history as the Milwaukee Road. Ranging from the railroad's late-nineteenth-century beginnings to its purchase by onetime rival Soo Line in 1985, the book looks at The Milwaukee Road's famed streamlined Hiawatha passenger trains, the "Little Joe" electric locomotives, and the sprawling fabrication and repair facilities in its namesake city. Whether surveying the railroad's routes and the trains that plied them, and the people who worked behind the scenes, or focusing on the line's motive power, rolling stock, passenger and freight operations, The Milwaukee Road provides a broad-scale, brilliantly detailed portrait of a great railroad, an industry, and a bygone era.

Milwaukee Road Depots 1856-1954 Photo
The Milwaukee Road distinguished itself with the depots it built across its great rail empire, which eventually covered 13 states. Some depots were designed by such renowned architects as Frost and Granger and Frank Lloyd Wright. All were built on the belief that providing good housing for agents would ensure quality, lifelong employees. Milwaukee Road Depots features historic photographs that span from the smallest country stations to the grandest of the grand and everything in between. Includes popular stations in Milwaukee, Butte, Montana, Owatonna, Minnesota, and the widely recognized Wausau, Wisconsin Milwaukee Road Depot.

The Milwaukee Road: Its First Hundred Years
The Milwaukee Road: Its First Hundred
From its incorporation in 1847 in Wisconsin Territory to its first run in 1851—twenty miles between Milwaukee and Waukesha—to its later position of far-flung power, the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul &Pacific Railroad Company had a vivid history. By 1948, the Milwaukee Road had more than 40,000 employees and maintained more than 10,000 miles of line in twelve states from Indiana to Washington.Also in 1948, August Derleth's popular and well-crafted corporate history celebrated the strength and status of this mighty carrier. On February 19, 1985, the railroad became a subsidiary of Soo Line Corporation and its identity vanished overnight. Nonetheless, it remains a romantic memory, and Derleth's book remains the only complete history of this innovative and dynamic railroad.

Building Chicago's Subways (Images of America)
Building Chicago's Subways (Images of
While the elevated Chicago Loop is justly famous as a symbol of the city, the fascinating history of its subways is less well known. The City of Chicago broke ground on what would become the "Initial System of Subways" during the Great Depression and finished 20 years later. This gigantic construction project, a part of the New Deal, would overcome many obstacles while tunneling through Chicago's soft blue clay, under congested downtown streets, and even beneath the mighty Chicago River. Chicago's first rapid transit subway opened in 1943 after decades of wrangling over routes, financing, and logistics. It grew to encompass the State Street, Dearborn-Milwaukee, and West Side Subways, with the latter modernizing the old Garfield Park "L" into the median of Chicago's first expressway. Take a trip underground and see how Chicago's "I Will" spirit overcame challenges and persevered to help with the successful building of the subways that move millions. Building Chicago's subways was national news and a matter of considerable civic pride--making it a "Second City" no more!

Milwaukee Mayhem: Murder and Mystery in the Cream City's First Century
Milwaukee Mayhem: Murder and Mystery in the Cream
From murder and matchstick men to all-consuming fires, painted women, and Great Lakes disasters--and the wide-eyed public who could not help but gawk at it all--"Milwaukee Mayhem" uncovers the little-remembered and rarely told history of the underbelly of a Midwestern metropolis. "Milwaukee Mayhem" offers a new perspective on Milwaukee's early years, forgoing the major historical signposts found in traditional histories and focusing instead on the strange and brutal tales of mystery, vice, murder, and disaster that were born of the city's transformation from lakeside settlement to American metropolis. Author Matthew J. Prigge presents these stories as they were recounted to the public in the newspapers of the era, using the vivid and often grim language of the times to create an engaging and occasionally chilling narrative of a forgotten Milwaukee.Through his thoughtful introduction, Prigge gives the work context, eschewing assumptions about "simpler times" and highlighting the mayhem that the growth and rise of a city can bring about. These stories are the orphans of Milwaukee's history, too unusual to register in broad historic narratives, too strange to qualify as nostalgia, but nevertheless essential to our understanding of this American city.

The Milwaukee Road's Hiawathas (Great Passenger Trains)
The Milwaukee Road's Hiawathas (Great Passenger
In 1935, the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad-better known as the Milwaukee Road-introduced a new passenger service, one of the nation's first regularly scheduled streamlined passenger trains. Traveling from Chicago to Milwaukee and the Twin Cities-the train traveled routes steeped in native lore, and thus was called the Hiawatha. By 1945, there were three routes-the Twin Cities Hiawatha, the North Woods Hiawatha, and the Midwest Hiawatha-and the Hiawathas became known as the "Fastest Trains in America," clocking over 100 miles per hour on daily runs. This authoritative, illustrated history follows the Hiawathas as they powered into American railroad legend. Veteran railroad writer and photographer John Gruber gives a detailed account of the trains from 1935 to 1971. He examines their motive powerthe early fleet of steam locomotives that first wore the streamlined Hiawatha shrouds and the diesel engines that followed in the 1950sas well as their distinctive rolling stock, such as the classic ""Super Domes"" and the observation cars known as Skytop Lounges. Dozens of black-and-white archival images and period color photographs recreate the Hiawathas’ heyday, capturing the texture of the time in details such as uniforms, car interiors and terminals, stations, a...
