Chicago, North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad ex Oregon Electric Railroadheavy freight locomotive # 459 working an industrial siding in KenoshaWisconsin.

I found this photo at My link page Dave's Electric Railroads to the right of Your computer screen.

The greater Chicagoland area, once had an abundance of electric powered interurban railroads. The Chicago, North Shore And Milwaukee Railroad wich had went out of business for good in January of 1963, was one of them.

A number of electric interurban railroads around the nation, also hauled freight trains over their systems.

This Chicago, North Shore And Milwaukee Railroad freight train, is viewed at work in the Kenosha Wisconsin area.
