Hey, check out the January 2013 issue of Railfan & Railroad... We did two cover stories on the Insull interurbans, one that made it (South Shore) and one that didn't (North Shore). Also includes a brief article from artist Mitch Markovitz. Also check out the web site to see an interesting photo gallery I threw together of North Shore images...

This was all to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of the North Shore Line on Jan. 21, 1963.

Enjoy!
