The newest version of George W. Hilton’s classic electric interurban history book is here! At the dawn of the twentieth century, before good roads were common and everybody owned an automobile, Northwestern Ohio was the home of the Toledo, Port Clinton and Lakeside Railway. The TPC&L began operating in 1905 and didn’t entirely close until 1958–that was decades after other railways like it gave up!
This fascinating book, first published in 1964, contains the story of the line as told by noted transportation authority George W. Hilton, including its construction in the days of “interurban fever,” the boats that carried passengers from Marblehead to Cedar Point and Sandusky, its varied rolling stock, accidents, and more!
Available as both paperback and ebook.
The ebook version contains all content from the printed volume.
