Rock Island RR Book(s)

Post by Bigt »

Am a newcomer to the Rock Island Railroad, I am interested in any recommendations
for books on that road. I well imagine there have been many written over the years.
As a past fan of the Rutland Railroad, I know "The Rutland Road" by Jim Shaughnessy
was / is "the bible" for fans of that road. I am wondering, is there any ONE book, or
even two books, that Rock Island fans would consider to their "must have bible"?
Thanks in advance.
