Former Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad baggage cart. The Riverside Illinois Metra commuter rail station. September 2006.

I spotted this relic from North America's glory days of passenger train travel on display at the Riverside Illinois Metra commuter rail station in Chicago's western suburbs. The stenciling on the front wooden bulkhead indicated that this cart was originally assigned to the passenger train station in Pontiac Illinois, while the sides were stenciled for the G,M & O. Today it is a displayed curio from decades past for all to see.
