Wisconsin Central Heritage

Volume One

By John Leopard.

Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11", 128 glossy pages, color photos throughout. 2007.

"Volume 1 begins with a history of one of America's most successful regional railroad, including companies the WC purchased: Fox River Valley Railroad; Green Bay & Western; and Algoma Central.

"This is a subdivision by subdivision look at the system beginning at Chicago and working north to Fond du Lac, Neenah, Green Bay, Gladstone, and Sault Ste. Marie. More than a picture book - plenty of in depth analysis of train schedules, yard operations, and customer and shipper information. For historical perspective trains of each of the line's previous operators are included: Soo Line, C&NW, Milwaukee Road. Volume 2 covers the former C&NW upper-Michigan ore lines, the Algoma Central, and the remainder of the WC system including Stevens Point, Ashland, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and the Twin Ports of Duluth/Superior."
