Iowa's Railroads : An Album, Paperback / softback Book

Iowa's Railroads : An Album Paperback / softback

Edited by Don L. Hofsommer, H. Roger Grant


At one point in time, no place in Iowa was more than a few miles from an active line of rail track.

In this splendid companion volume to Steel Trails of Hawkeyeland (IUP, 2005), H.

Roger Grant and Don L. Hofsommer explore the pivotal role that railroads played in the urban development of the state as well as the symbiotic relationship Iowa and its rails shared.

With more than 400 black-and-white photographs, a solid inventory of depots and locations, and new information that is sure to impress even the most well-versed railfan, this detailed history of the state's railroads-including the Chicago & North Western, Cedar Rapids & Iowa City, and the Iowa Northern-will be an essential reference for railroad fans and historians, artists, and model railroad builders.
