By Herbert H. Harwood, Jr., and Robert S. Korach

A classic look at one of Americas favorite electric railways.

From 1901 to 1938 the Lake Shore Electric claimed to be, and was considered by many, The Greatest Electric Railway in the United States. It paralleled the shore of Lake Erie, connecting Cleveland and Toledo with a high-speed, limited-stop service and even pioneered a form of intermodal transportation three decades before the rest of the industry.

It reached its peak in the early 1920s. The Lake Shore Electric suffered the fate of most of its sister lines: it could not compete with automobiles, trucks, or buses in terms of convenience or economy. This book recounts a fascinating chapter in interurban transportation history.


Herbert H. Harwood, Jr., a railroad historian, writer, photographer, and working railroader, is author of 11 nooks.

Robert S. Korach has had a lifelong fascination with urban rail. He is past president of the Association of Railway Museums.

Publication date: November 2000
