2.0 out of 5 stars In Black & White
Disappointing. Not a single color photo in the entire book. While "The 400 Story" by Jim Scribbins has only a few color photos, it has an absolute wealth of information and is a better buy. The '400' fleet of the 40s and 50s had black roofs not green ones as so many think. You wouldn't know that from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enthusiastically recommended addition to any railroad buff's personal reference collection., May 5, 2008
This review is from: Chicago & North Western Passenger Trains of the 400 Fleet Photo Archive (Paperback)
Iconographix is a publishing house dedicated to providing personal, academic, and community libraries with thematic compilations of historic photographs drawn from diverse pictorial archives from around the country. This is especially true of such visual railroad memorials as John Kelly's "Chicago & North Western: Passenger Trains Of The 400 Fleet" offers an historical 'window in time' perspective on the Chicago-Twin Cities 400 commuter passenger trains that plied their way through such upper Midwest communities as Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wisconsin's North Woods, Upper Michigan, and southern Minnesota. This was an era where the Chicago & North Western offered their passengers speed, luxury, safety, and $1.25 dinners. In addition to full-page black-and-white photos of the trains themselves, browsers will also encounter photographs of stations, advertisements, and railcar interiors. A superbly organized and presented archival volume, "Chicago & North Western" is an enthusiastically recommended addition to any railroad buff's personal reference collection.

This review is from: Chicago & North Western Passenger Trains of the 400 Fleet Photo Archive (Paperback)
A history of a railroad which I grew up with. Passenger trains in their prime. Would have loved more pictures in color.
