Since 1938 CERA has published bulletins dealing with the history and technology of electric railways. Since 1952 these publications have taken the form of a yearbook, each issue delving into the story of a particular state or part of a state. In 1961 we return to Illinois, throwing the spotlight "in our own backyard" on the Chicago Aurora & Elgin Railway and its predecessors; the group of lines which went to make up the "Great Third Rail Electric".
Still fresh in our minds are many details of the only recently departed service, but as we dug into the study it was surprising how much more there was to be learned in order to present a reasonably complete history of the property. In this pleasant chore, we were capably assisted by many members and friends.
Bulletin 105 is a technical, educational reference prepared as a historical project by members of the Central Electric Railfans' Association, working without salary in the interests of the subject as a hobby.
