"Illinois Central Railroad 1854-1960 Photo Archive

By Kim D. Tschudy. Epitomized in song and story, the Illinois Central was arguably the most interesting and colorful railroad in America. Begun in 1851, the IC was the first land grant railroad in the United States.

While other railroads ran east and west, the IC ran north and south, so when the Civil War began the IC was able to move 30% of all war material, supplies and troops to the battlegrounds of the south.

This book of IC locomotives, depots and memorabilia dating from 1875 to 1970 gives readers an intimate look at the railroad that called itself the Mainline of Mid America."
