Review of Monon Shes a Hoosier Line DVD

 2.5 of 5 (4)
During its long reign, the Monon Railroad reached beyond its modest size to play a major role in the lives of the people it served. If there ever was a Midwestern railroad that achieved storybook charisma, it was the Hoosier Line, Indiana'sown railroad. Noted railroad historian Bill Warrick has assembled an amazing collection of vintage footage to bring you a thoroughly entertaining retrospective of the Monon from its humble beginnings in 1847 to its classic period a century later under the direction of fabled railroader John W. Barriger, and then to its takeover in 1971 by the L&N.

The Monon provided north-south transportation of people and goods from the Great Lakes to the Ohio River. Lines from Chicago and Michigan City at the north to Indianapolis and Louisville at the south transected at the town of Monon, giving the railroad first its nickname and later its corporate identity. Through an assortment of rare color and black and while films and photos, you will be led back in
