Growing up in Chicago fifty years ago (gasp) my friends and I used to play around a small CNW yard on the northwest side of the city. In my faded memory I believe that it would be a great little switching puzzle yard to build up and take to shows... but I can't remember the exact track plan.
Does anyone here know where I might find aerial photos or track maps of Chicago in the 50's? (I've already tried Sanborn, but I am such small potatoes to them that they won't even answer my e-mail.)
Thanks in advance for the help,
