Speedrail was the last remnant of Milwaukee's once vast and proud interurban rail system, begun by the Milwaukee Electric Railway & Light Company in the early 1900s. Under the enthusiastic direction of its new owner, Jay Maeder, it might have succeeded had it not been for a fateful, tragic wreck on September 2, 1950. This is the dramatic story of Speedrail and its vain struggle to stay alive, profusely illustrated with both color and black & white photos, maps, timetables, and tickets of the era.
