In the early decades of this century, you could go anywhere by rail. If the steam roads couldn't do it, then the interurbans and trolleys could. We portray several interurbans from the Nations heartland as they ran out their final years. The Illinois Terminal was a big road with lines from St. Louis to Peoria via Springfield and from Springfield to Bloomington via Decatur. We ride the "Bloomington Line" from Decatur through Macinaw Junction. In Iowa, we ride the Waterloo, Cedar Falls and Northern while we chat with the motorman, run past an unusual dog and turn on the streets of Cedar Falls, all in the early '50's. Finally, we take a tour of Chicago area transportation system in the same era. The Chicago, North Shore and Milwaukee, the Chicago, Aurora and Elgin, the Illinois Central electrics, the Chicago, South Shore and South Bend and an assortment of lines in the RTA.
