Fearing the rapacious energy of Chicago’s railroad system within the mid-1800s, Iowa Central Railway supporters fought for a north-south route throughout the state that will hyperlink Minneapolis and St. Paul with St. Louis. Such a route would put the wants of Iowa’s residents first and present transportation for the state’s agricultural and industrial commerce. Analyzing the origins, development, and eventual dismantling of the Iowa Central Railway, which traversed the state from Ackley to Zearing and Mason City to Marshalltown, Don Hofsommer examines how this unremarkable, “plain vanilla” railway was an instance of the life cycle of the American railroad trade.

Born in ambition however by no means rising far above its obscure origins, the Iowa Central ultimately fell to outdoors competitors from railroads primarily based in higher metropolitan areas and was made a part of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway in 1912. Drawing the story from station information, annual reviews, newspaper articles, and interviews with former staff, The Hook & Eye brings each the trade and human sides of railroading into sharp and memorable view
