The Hoosier Line

By Gary W. and Stephen F. Dolzall  


Monon: The Hoosier Line

This revised second edition features an updated epilogue, additional photographs, and a new afterward by Frank Van Bree, president of the Monon Railroad Historical-Technical Society, Inc. Many railroads served the state, but the Monon was Indiana's own. The self-proclaimed "Hoosier Line" celebrated its heritage by naming its flagship passenger train The Hoosier, featuring Indiana cooking in the dining cars and offering homespun service. Monon explores the history of this magnificent railroad, from its inception in 1847 as the New Albany & Salem Rail Road, then as the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago, to its merger in 1970 with the L&N, and beyond. 8 1/2 x 11", hardcover, 208 pages, 278 b/w photos and 27 color photos.
