Please: Where is the Hit of The Week -- weekly looks do not reveal any changes, and the latest month listed (in review) is August -- and here we are nearly in October?!

It is too true, even if too trite, that one doesn't appreciate a good thing readily -- until its gone!

Our town, North of Chicago, had two commuter lines in 1955 -- the steam engine driven locals of the Chicago & Nortwestern RR, and The North Shore Line, an electric inter-urban that ran alongside it -- literally a few feet away -- all the way from The Loop northward to Milwawkee, Wisconsin. Both lines had their Stations across the street from each other, and the North Shore Line, which ran only during daytime whereas the yellow '400' engines of the C&NW streaked through night & day, even had manually operated crossing gates. The Northwestern's passanger cars were fitted out in huge cast iron parlour seats apolstered in thick Port red, and the North Shore was covered in basket-weave -- the "working person's" fare.

These two communter lines changed radically -- the electric line went under and the steam line converted to double-decker diesel push-pull trains, which eliminated the necessity for round-houses.

It was too late to resurrect the North Shore Line, and the C&NW passenger train is now an Amtrack hand-me-down.

But, pray tell: What has become of the Dismuke Hit of The Week?!

Has ole Diz finally run afoul of the Big Media Mob?
Has the copyright dog finally lain down in the musical manger?

Hit of the Week updates are back. There hasn't been one since the end of July as things have been busy and something had to give time wise. However, they should now once again be updated on a much more regular basis.
