DESCRIPTION

America's First "All Electric Luxury Trains" proclaimed the ads announcing the first run of the "ElectroLiners" on Feb 9th 1941.

The design of the "ElectroLiners" was influenced by the competition on the Chicago to Milwaukee Run of the C&NW's 400 trains, and the Milwaukee Road's Hiawatha trains.

Also influencing the design was the fact that the "ElectroLiners" had to circumnavigage the "EL" tracks above the Chicago Loop and run down the middle of city streets as it entered Milwaukee.

Built by St. Louis Car company in their huge plant outside St. Louis, 2 compelete 4 car Trains were built for the "North Shore" the trains exceeded their design standard of being able to make the 120 mile run between Chicago and Milwaukee on a mile a minute schedule. (Including stops).

Con-Cor's founder, Jim Conway, often rode the ElectroLiners as a young boy and teenager, as most of his mother's family and a lot of his cousins lived in Kenosha, Wisconsin on the North Shore's main line.

And his Grandma's house backed up to the North Shore's trackage.

In fact the worst rail disaster the North Shore ever had happened in his Grandma's back yard in the early 1930's. (This was pre-ElectroLiner era).

When the North Shore line was abandoned in 1963, both ElectroLiner Train sets were sold to Philadelphia mass transit to run on their "Red line". And were known as "Liberty Liners".

They ran for many years and were eventually retired.

One train set (The Valley Forge) was sold back to the Illinois Railway Museum, and the 2nd (The Independence Hall) is in storage at the Rockhill Trolley Museum in Rockhill Furnace Pa. awaiting funds to restore it.
