Rail Competition Along Wisconsin's Western Wall from Four Ways West is a great look at a variety of rail action. Wisconsin's western border blends a busy variety of colorful railroad action with stunning scenery. This book will fill your eyes with bold competition between rivals from Duluth in the north to Dubuque in the south. From the early 1960s on, stunning vistas near Lake Superior highlight the obstacles railroads have to surmount as they faced off against each other to vie for freight and passenger traffic. As lines bridge and follow the Mississippi River and its bluffs, nature's beauty and the carriers' diesels will tantalize your mind as you see adversaries vie for every ton and each passenger. Noted rail author and former railroad employee Dean Freimund relates the stories and the backgrounds in Rail Competition Along Wisconsin's Western Wall covering the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, Milwaukee Road, Chicago and North Western and their predecessors, successors and minor competitors.
