Incredible Interurbans!

Ellen Sebring

Get to know the full range of Interurbans that cruised city and rural routes starting and stopping on a dime. We celebrate this dynamic form of transit:.

Welcome aboard the world's most famous interurban line, running all the way from Chicago to Milwaukee. Half trolley and half streamlined railroad, this line competed with two other major railroads in intercity traffic for over half a century. Passengers in the streamlined, articulated "Electroliners" enjoyed meals while zipping along at 90 mph, but had the convenience of stepping off at street corners.  A masterpiece filmed by Frank Pfuhler with authentic sound by Russ Jackson.

South Shore Line

The North Shore Brought to Life

You'll feel a real tug at the heart strings as this film captures interurban America exactly as it used to be. Another masterpiece filmed by Frank Pfuhler and "brought to life" with authentic sound by Russ Jackson.
