For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

CHICAGO INTERCITY PASSENGER TRAINS IN COLOR: EARLY AMTRAK - VOL 2/Schmidt

Default Title: $1,927.00 TWD

The story of Chicago's status as the hub of America's national passenger train network continues with this study of the early days of Amtrak operations (1971-1990)! The era began with a medley of mixed equipment and ever-changing schedules and ended with the uniformity we now see. This volume captures that time and place, focusing primarily on the 1970s and early 1980s with 280 outstanding color images, both exterior and interior views, of these trains and their operations!
