Published: September 21, 2012
In the November 2012 issue of Trains, Sayre C. Kos describes The Belt Railway Company of Chicago's monstrous hump yard operation, in which cars weave their way from one end to the other. Workers there call it “feeding the Beast.” For another in-depth look at The Belt Railway, download the free PDF below of “A Railroad's Railroad,” which originally appeared in the September and October 1966 issues of Trains.
