Description

This represents the first book in a three-volume series that will provide
a detailed history and review of the Chicago Aurora & Elgin Railroad and
related corporations. For more than 50 years this interurban operated
mile-a-minute schedules west from Chicago to the suburbs of DuPage County
and cities in the Fox River Valley. This first volume introduces the
three-book series and covers CA&E routes and trackage in detail. The
company route structure is split into 10 logical segments and each is
covered with text, track maps and photographs. Included are sections on
Chicago’s Wells Street Terminal, the Cook County branch, the double track
mainline, and the single track branches to Elgin, Geneva, Batavia and
Aurora in the Fox River Valley. The book ends with a pictorial section
that includes several color photographs.
