The Omaha Road: Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha. By Stan Mailer

Copyright 2004. Published by Handman Publishing, Inc.

Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway was part and parcel of Chicago & North Western’s midwest empire. As country cousin, Omaha Road functioned in concert with C&NW’s mainline across Wisconsin, and provided the northern reaches of the empire with access to Lake Superior ports before 1912. The prize included the historic St. Croix Land Grant, which was highly sought by aggressive and prominent lumber barons. The railroad contented itself with forest traffic. This book has 311 pages illustrated throughout with photos, maps and locomotive rosters.

Hardcover book with dust jacket. Both book and dust jacket are excellent condition. One copy only.
