"The Absorbing story of the most colorful and unique small railroad in the midwest. "Few railroads faced comparable difficulties in startup, the succession of owners, or the various events of time. Follow the life of the early narrow gauge railroad - Ohio's Iron Railroad - the Henry Ford years, and Pennroad ownership. The railroad mergers of the 1960s and their disastrous effect on minor carriers like the DT&I; the succession of outside events that threatened its survival in the 70s, the later sale to the Grand Trunk - all here."
