The New Glarus Depot Preservation Society still sells copies of the
book "Railroads of Southern & Southwest Wisconsin" by Daniel Lanz
published in 1986. The price is $17.00 postpaid. It is available

I haven't seen the book, but I am ordering a copy. I did find a
review that stated it has good information and well illustrated. It
lacks information about the C&NW, but the reviewer speculated that the
author intended to write a second volume on just the C&NW. This
apparently did not happen. I only found one copy through ABE Books at
a higher price. Buying it from the Depot Preservation Society helps
them to raise funds to restore the old MILW depot in New Glarus.
