The Soo Line in Minnesota

by John C. Luecke and Paul R. Spyhalski

This in-depth study of the Soo Line in Minnesota covers the history and development of this late-comer to the State's railroad scene.

The book contains 320 pages with approximately 300 photographs (sixteen pages of Color views), 55+ maps and drawings and a wealth of information covering every aspect of the Soo Line in Minnesota.
 
Hard cover with Dust Jacket.
