Event description

Description

Amateur historian and long-time Lombard resident Carl Shaver discusses changes in the railroad over the last 46 years, with an emphasis on Lombard. 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.
