Preserved Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific caboose. Tinley Park Illinois USA. June 2008.

The Rock Island lives! Tinley Park Illinois. June 2008.

One of the lessor known artifacts of Chicago area railroad preservation, is this old steel cupola caboose from the defunct Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad. On display in a city park along the east side of 80th Avenue in south suburban Tinley Park Illinois, this caboose makes for a fine display.

The former Rock Island mainline passes through Tinley Park Illinois as well.
