New in my library : Electric Railways of Indiana

Electric Railways of Indiana
Jerry Marlette
1980, Hoosier Heritage Press, 2nd Edition
Paperback, 214 pages
Contains many car drawings and an Indiana Railroad Map.

The book was stamped by his prior owner Richard Clark Evans with his name in ink and the purchase date of 1981.

Like all Marlette books, it is well written, containing precious details and has amazing photos, even if the quality of them is not so high due to low production standards of the book. 

On page 137, an incredible photo shows the wiring of an Interurban line with a work motor pushing the wire car and stringing the wire "hot" under power , with the reel under power at all times.
