"A fine book, worth the attention of any serious historian of the railroad industry." "Journal of Illinois History"
"David M. Young enriches and expands upon our historical knowledge of Chicago by illuminating the centrality of railroading in the city's ascent. This book, in the company of Young's earlier studies about the city's transportation history, will rightfully assume an indispensable place on readers' bookshelves." Michael H. Ebner, author of "Creating Chicago's North Shore"
"In this nicely crafted work, David Young takes the reader on a fascinating tour of the past and present of railroads in Chicagoland. This book is remarkably informative and offers lively reading. No one has ever done this topic so well." H. Roger Grant, author of "The North Western""
