How many books are there about the Illinois Terminal? is there one that tells of the final years leading up to the takeover by N&W?

There are many books on the IT but most of them deal with electric days and just touch on the diesel, freight only IT.
About 1981 TRAINS magazine took a look at IT from the end of electric operation to absorption into N & W. Text, map and photos.
