North to West: The Best of Modern Chicagoland Rail showcases North and West Chicago's suburbs' best locations, trains, and photographs from the modern 2010s-2020s era. These suburbs of the United States' largest rail hub are filled with unique locations and trains you simply cannot see anywhere else in the world. Anyone can go out and find generic trains on these mainlines, but the authors pride themselves in documenting the history before their eyes. Unfortunately, as the times change, some of these trains and locations no longer exist, but that's the point of documenting history From the country-wide class ones to small grain elevator short lines, the Chicagoland rail subdivisions into Wisconsin and Iowa are some of the most important arteries to the United States and Canada. Through the eyes of two experienced and dedicated photographers from Northern Chicagoland, the journey through the Northwestern suburbs is a largely undocumented and underappreciated gem in the Midwestern United States. From the popular Rochelle Railroad Park and the Cornfields of Southern Wisconsin, to the hustle and bustle of just outside the Windy City of Chicago itself, join James Keats Jr. and Dave Zeman as they showcase the best of modern Chicagoland railroads.
