Chicago, Rail Capital
In the late 1940's Chicago was the nation's railroad capital, today Chicago is freight, commuters and a greatly-reduced number of intercity passengers
Chicago Rail Fair of 1948-1949
In a recent National Railway Historical Society Bulletin I read that at the time of the Chicago Rail Fair of 1948, Chicago had 22 Class 1 railroads, 9 switching/terminal roads; 6 industrial railroads and 3 suburban (interurban) roads. I have searched for all the information available on this memorable event.
Chicago Bypass
A Chicago Bypass is all about getting railroad freight around Chicago instead of going through Chicago (with the resulting delays and pollution). Lots on car pollution in Chicago. Lots of energy saved.
Chicago River and Indiana Railroad
The Chicago River & Indiana Railroad and the Chicago Junction Railway controlled access to the Chicago Union Stock Yards district. They were part of the New York Central System. Includes the Indiana Harbor Belt.
Elgin, Joliet & Eastern, The J
The Elgin, Joliet & Eastern, runs a huge circle around Chicago, crossing every line entering the Chicago terminal. In addition, it serves great industries, like US Steel's Gary Works.
