THROUGH PALACE CAR ARRANGEMENT. 

Wagner's Through Palace Drawing Room and Sleeping Cars 
between BOSTON, NEW YORK & CHICAGO, via Buffalo. 



SUPERIOR ADVANTAGES. 
This through Palace Car arrangement, under one management, with through 
Palace Car conductors, proves to be a very great advantage and comfort to the travel- 
ing public, obviating entirely the former changes at East Buffalo and Rochester. 
In addition to the Boston, New York and Chicago through line, via the Lake 
Shore & Michigan Southern Railway, a daily line of Palace Sleeping Cars runs 
between Rochester and Chicago, connecting with Drawing Room Cars from the 
East. Passengers taking Drawing Room Cars from any station on this route can, 
on application to conductor, send telegrams free, securing sections in Lake Shore 
Sleeping Cars. The magnificent Drawing Room Cars "Yosemite" and "Yoko- 
hama, 1 ' will form a daily line between Cleveland and Niagara Falls, and are unsur- 
passed on the continent. A line of Sleeping Cars also runs between Cleveland and 
New York. (Sections secured in the through Chicago and Boston Sleeping Car.) 




A CALIFORNIA PASSENGER 

writing home, in giving his Railway experience, says: 

"On the LAKE SHORE -we simply flew."

Tothe business and traveling public no place is better known than this "ancient landmark," which has

events are connected with its history. In one of its chambers occupied by the Representatives originated 
tbeinoBt important measures which led to the emancipation of the colonies — w.th those giants, who stak- 
es life and fortune upon the issue, adopted for their motto— 

"Let such, such only tread this sacred floor 
Who dare to love their country and be poor."

It has been my pleasing task to watch carefully over and develop tlie Guide 
from its first number lo the present time, and ] may lie pardoned for feeling a just 
pride in the symmetry of the work, its uniform correctness and special adaptation 
to the purposes for which it was designed. And In retiring from the position, 1 
have the satisfaction of knowing that in every instance! have justified the confi- 
dence reposed in me. 

In concluding these personal remarks, I would also return thanks to my editorial 
and other friends, for the many kindly notices received at their hands, and I shall 
bear with me, and ever retain, a lively recollection of the many kind friends whose 
acquaintance has been formed during the year and a half I have been connected 
with the Lake Shore &, Michigan Southern Kail way GuiDB, 

And now

A eound which makes us linger; yet— farewell."

Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railway. 

No railway in the country has made greater efforts than the Lake Shore & Mich- 
igan Southern to perfect its equipment and road-bed by the introduction of steel 
rails, their substitution for iron, and the replacing old bridges and culverts by sub- 
stantial structures of stone and iron. In the main track about three hundred 
miles of steel rail have been laid, and it has been the policy of the Company, as far 
as practicable, and as rapidly as the track required renewal, to substitute steel for 
iron on those portions carrying the heaviest traffic. 

For several years past small sections of double track have been laid along the 
line, but something over a year ago the work was gone at in earnest, and now the 
Lake Shore & Michigan Southern has a double track all the way from Buffalo to 
Chicago, except on a section, about ninety miles long, between Osceola and Chi- 
cago. Several million dollars have been expended in this work. Recent disasters 
by collision have opened the eyes of the public to the importance of double-track- 
ing railways, and those which are double tracked maybe expected to secure the 
bulk of the travel. 

The advantageous location of the Company's lines entering Toledo was enhanced 
by the purchase of one hundred and eighty-nine acres, whereon a large distribut- 
ing freight yard lias been arranged, with a network of track fifteen miles in extent, 
upon which the through trains are made up and run past Toledo, thus greatly 
expediting business. For the single item of construction, the Company last year 



The Miniature Illustrated Railway Guide. 



expended over five millions, and for additional equipment, nearly two millions 
more. Much money was spent upon permanent improvements during the season of 
1872. Among these may be mentioned the viaduct over Eighteen Mile Creek and 
the double elliptical arch over Silver Creek, which cost about $250,000 each ; a view 
of this arch is given on page 14 of the Guide. The immense new depot at Chicago 
wasalso completed, notwithstanding the Iosb of $500,000 which the Company suf- 
fered by the burning of its former structure. The new one is acknowledged to be 
the finest railroad depot in the world, except the Grand Central in New York. 

The Company found it necessary and have put upon the track, during the year 
and a half just passed, over one hundred and fifty engines, at a cost, in round 
numbers, of $1,500,000. Flat, freight and passenger cars have also been in con- 
stant demand and largely added, and the shop facilities have been greatly enlarged. 

The Lansing Division has been completed. It runs from Jonesville, on the 
main line, to Lansing, a distance of sixty miles, passing through Eaton Rapids, 
where the famous mineral springs are located. On page 19 will be found a cut of 
the new depot, just completed at Lansing. The Franklin and Oil City Division 
and the Youngstown Branch have also been opened and are in use by the Com- 
pany. These branches are all thoroughly equipped with rolling stock and doing a 
fine business. 

The Company is now operating about twelve hundred miles of road, a length of 
line exceeded by few corporations in the world. It is safe to say that no other 
Company in the country has expended as much in the past two years in perfecting 
its line, and on permanent roadways and structures. The result is a magnificent 
railway, superbly appointed and equipped, a credit to the country it traverses. 

Of the conveniences and beauties of this route too much cannot be said. Thoso 
who have ever passed over the Great South Shore route know how complete are all 
its arrangements for safety, speed and comfort, and in the matter of scenery no other 
railway on the continent affords five hundred and forty miles of more beautiful 
landscape than this. Its managers, alive to the best interest of its patrons, havo 
adopted all modern improvements— all trains having the Westlnghouse air brako 
as well as the Creamer brake (which is used as an extra precaution), both being 
under the control of the engineer, who can instantly bring a pressure to bear on 
every wheel, thus being able to stop the train, when under full headway, in less 
than two lengths of the train. 

Additional security is afforded passengers by the use of the Miller platform and 
coupler on all the cars of this Company. By its use the timid passenger is enabled 
to pass from one car to another without danger, and it is also a positive prevention 
of telescoping— that is, one coach running into or through another. Besides, all 
cars have safety-chains attached to aid in holding them together. Patent steam 
heaters are used, with pipes under each seat, warming all parts of the car but 
avoiding danger from fire. No road could be made safer than the Lake Shore &

Michigan Southern. It may be mentioned, also, that there ha* been no interrup- 
tion of any movement to trains by SHOW during the past, two years. 

The palace cars for this road are built for the most part at their own shops, and 
are conceded to surpass the Pullman cars. 

Passengers, while seated in the splendid coaches, hardly realize, ninirt the many 
comf'rts wh'ch surround them, that they are being transported over this route at 
the highest rate or speed : so free are the cars from 1 hat Jarring motion that renders 
many roads so unpleasant to travel upon.

WITH POPULATION, RAILROAD CONNECTIONS, Etc. 



Chicago— Estimated population at the present time 465,700; is the metropolis of 
the Northwest, the largest city in Illinois and the county seat of Cook county ; sit- 
uated on the southwest shore of Lake Michigan. 14 miles from its extreme south- 
ern point, and at the mouth of Chicago river. No city upon the globe can boast 
of more rapid or substantial growth than Chicago. 

A few years ago its present site was but an Indian village. Major Long, in his 
expedition to examine the sources of the St. Peter's river, thus speaks of it: " The 
village presents no cheering prospects, .as, notwithstanding its antiquity, it, consists 
of but a few huts, inhabited by a miserable set of men, scarcely equal to the Indians 
from whom they are descended. Their log or bark houses are low, filthy and dis- 
gusting,, displaying not the least trace of comfort. Chicago is perhaps one of the 
oldest settlements in the Indian country ; its name, derived from the Potawatomie 
tongue, signifies either a skunk or wild onion ; and either of these significations 
have been given it. 11 Mention is made of the place as having been visited in 1671 
by Perot, who found ' Chicago ' to bo the residence of a powerful chief of the Miamis. 
The number of trails centering all in this point, and their apparent antiquity, indi- 
cate that it was probably for a long period the site of a large Indian village. 11 

In 1848 there was no railway leading to or from Chicago. The whole State had 
but 55 miles of railroad, extending from Meredosia, on the Illinois river, to Spring- 
field. The Illinois and Michigan canal had just been opened, and gave the first 
real and great impetus to trade and prosperity of the city. Five days. was then 
quick tinie in the summer between New York' and Chicago. The route was by 
steamer to Albany ; thence hy rail to Buffalo ; by steamer from Buffalo to Detroit ; 
thence by the Michigan Central Railway to Kalamazoo ; thence by stage to St, 
Joseph, and steamer thence to Chicago. 

Sixteen miles of the Galena Railway were opened to Cottage Hill in 1849, and the 
opening of the road to "Elgin on the 22d of January, 1850, was a grand affair. The 
Michigan Southern was the first road to reach the city from the East, in February, 
1852, and the Michigan Central was opened some three or four months later. 
To-day Chicago is the western terminus of the Michigan Central, the western termi- 
nus of the Chicago & Michigan Lake Shore, (via the M. C. track from New Buffalo); 
the northwestern terminus of the Indianapolis, Peru & Chicago, (via the M. C. track 
from Michigan City); the western terminus of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern: 
the northwestern terminus of the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago, and the Pitts- 
burg, Cincinnati & St. Louis ; the northern terminus of the Louisville, New Albany 
& Chicago, and the Chicago, Danville & Viucennes, (via the Pittshurg, Cincinnati 
& St. Louis track) ; the northern terminus of the Illinois Central ; the northeastern 
terminus of the Chicago & Alton, and the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, (with her 
eleven branches) ; the'eastern terminus of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, and 
the converging point of the eight distinct lines of the Chicago & Northwestern 
Railway, (embracing 1219 miles of road in operation).
