Detailed history of of one of the least successful interurbans ever built. The line linked Sycamore to Marengo, Illinois (never making it to Woodstock) and provided service intermittently for a decade. The author, a noted traction expert, covers the construction, operation, financial woes and eventual abandonment of a line that started with high hopes and luxurious McKeen gasoline motor cars but was rendered bankrupt by poor service, inadequate financing and the dawning of the automobile age. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With maps and equipment roster. 56 pages.
