Frisco Railroad #1630 spotting a hopper car. The Illinois Railway Museum. Union Illinois USA. July 1981.

I took this photo of a rare behind the scenes action photograph, of a railroad museums operations. Frisco steam locomotive # 1630 didn't always pull tourist passenger trains at the museum, sometimes it had to "Pitch In" and do some chores like switching and moving cars. Here is a scene of # 1630 doing what it did in it's service life back in the steam era. Working.
