Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692030948, Paperback)

"8.5x11", 86 pages, softcover. 2015. "This title is a nostalgic last look as documented by the author in the summer of 1969 - the last year in which all six of Chicago's major train stations were in regular operation. The author, then employed by the Association of American Railroads in Chicago, made it his mission to photograph the final days of the great stations before they were gone. Mostly color photos show detailed views of each station's distinct architecture, as well as images of station employees, travelers and the passenger trains. Featured are Grand Central Station (Baltimore and Ohio / B&O, Chesapeake and Ohio / C&O, Soo Line, Chicago Great Western / CGW, Pere Marquette / PM), Chicago Union Station (Pennsylvania / Pennsy / PRR, Burlington Route / Chicago Burlington and Quincy / CB&Q, Gulf Mobile and Ohioh / GM&O, Milwakuee Road / CMStP&P), Dearborn Station (Chicago and Western Indiana / C&WI, Chicago and Eastern Illinois / C&EI, Erie, Grand Trunk Western / GTW, Monon / CI&L, Santa Fe / AT&SF, Wabash), LaSalle Street Station (New York Central . NYC, Nickel Plate / NYC&StL, Rock Island / CRI&P), North Western Station (Chicago and North Western / C&NW) and Central Station (Illinois central / IC, Big Four / CCC&StL, Michigan Central / MC, Chicago South Shore and South Bend / CSS&SB)."
