The Main Line volume is the first of the three. It follows the Wisconsin portion of the Milwaukee Road's Chicago-Twin Cities main line, which entered from Illinois at Ranney and departed the state by crossing the Mississippi River at LaCrosse. The line hosted the railroad's premiere passenger trains, from early Pioneer Limited and Day Express through Olympian and Columbian to the striking Hiawathas. In-between, all manner of freights plied the line. Soft cover.
