Tennessee Central Railroad - The Nashville Route ~ by Cliff Downey
Tennessee Central Railroad - The Nashville Route
"A full history of this important 296 mile railroad that ran from western Kentucky through Nashville to eastern Tennessee. It had the best routing to and from the city of Nashville and was an important gateway route as well as connector. It was an important coal hauler as well, and had the full range of passenger and freight services and facilities. It fell on bad days after WWII and eventually its trackage was taken over after 1968 and operated by Southern, Louisville & Nashville, and Illinois Central. The line had interesting ALCO diesels, including FAs! Arthur Cliff Downey has given a very complete history of the line and concentrates much of the book on the trains, equipment, and operations, with excellent B&W and color photos, maps, and illustrations. This is the definitive history of this railroad, well researched, and well written."  ~ TLC Publishing

The Tootin' Louie : A History of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway ~ by Don L. Hofsommer
The Tootin' Louie : A History of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway
"
The Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway (M&StL), affectionately known as the Tootin' Louie, was founded in 1870 to serve a Minneapolis business community threatened by powerful railway interests emerging from both Chicago and Milwaukee. Although its goal of providing a direct rail artery to St. Louis proved elusive, the M&StL became a 1,600-mile road that supplied essential freight and passenger carriage to the Midwest over its ninety-year existence. In The Tootin' Louie, railroad historian Don L. Hofsommer offers a comprehensive biography of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway and its Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, and Illinois service areas from the dawn of the steamcar civilization into the post-World War II era.
