John Kohlberg 128 pages hardcover
Visit the ICG’s Sparta District with its manifest freights, coal trains,
and a local all sharing 149 miles of single track main traversing a
territory rife with sags and hogbacks – part of which was known as the
Badlands. It’s the story of "old head" railroading, the comic book
plant, a big hill (in both directions), coal mines, and much more – all
in Southern Illinois!
