"Featured in this title by author James Lewnard are hundreds of never before published photos - plus maps presented in vivid color. Each photograph is comprehensively captioned. The photographic timeline stretches from the 1972 Illinois Central/Gulf, Mobile &Ohio merger until the “unmerger” in February 1988.

"The introduction reflects on the policies and decisions that affected the operation of the Illinois Central Gulf as well as changes that were never completed. Also included are IC transit in the Chicago area and an early Amtrak chapter."
