Brown Bag Lunch - 40 Years of Trains in Lombard

  • Carriage House 23 West Maple Street Lombard, IL, 60148 United States (map)

Amateur historian and long-time Lombard resident Carl Shaver will discuss changes in the railroad through Lombard over the last 40+ years. He’ll touch on the history of the discontinued CGW line and technology updates to tracks, signals, operations (once Union Pacific took over), and freight equipment. Carl is always thrilled to answer those railroad questions you didn’t even know you had. 
Free, but please RSVP due to limited seating.
