Two former Chicago city streetcars at the Depot Street trolley shelter. The Illinois Railway Museum. Union Illinois USA. June 2001.

Two former city streetcars from Chicago, are seen on the west end of the demonstratuion trolley loop at the Illinois Railway Museum. The trolley loop encircles the immediate museum display grounds, and is more User Friendly to the museum's fleet of operable antique city streetcars. The museum also has an 8 mile round trip mainline for the steam -Diesel - and Electric Interurban equipment.

The Illinois Railway Museum is a very large museum with plenty of walking to do, and the city streetcars make it easier to get around the immediate museum property. There are 4 trolley station stops on the shuttle route too.
