I am looking for Information on the Illinois Northern Railway, a Chicago Shortline Absorbed into the ATSF. I don't have a lot yet, they had 6 Alco S4 Switchers in ATSF Zebra Stripe paint (I have found pictures of #29 and #34),and I have 2 maps. I have also heard it refered to as the"Cermak" line, its a street trackage line, and it is still quite active today.
I am going to need a lot of help, I am 2000 miles away from Chicago, so if you can help, please do so here or email me. I am looking for everything I can get on the Illinois Northern. This is going to be my HO Model Railroad subject, set sometime in the 60's, (though I think by changing the rolling stock and Autos on the Street, the Model railroad could be varied quite a bit as far as years go. Not sure on this).
I would be thankful for any help,
