THE OMAHA ROAD IN NEBRASKA/Bartels

Default Title: $25.95 USD

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING

The Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway was the principal subsidiary of the Chicago & North Western Railway, but long operated in its shadow. In Nebraska, some 311 miles were operated by the “Omaha Road.” The Nebraska lines were different from any other segment of that railroad, driven by the geography of the area itself. This book tells how "the Omaha" developed, served the livestock trade and local economy, and remained important to many communities of northeast Nebraska well into the post-World War II era. It is otherwise illustrated with many of the CStPM&O steam era photographs taken by Hol F. Braden, a longtime C&NW employee at Norfolk, Neb. Included are 88 black-and-white photos, along with maps and diagrams.
