The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. May 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo on the 4' x 8 ' spare layout, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
One of My happy memories about Chicago railroading when I was growing up on the near southwest side of Chicago during the 1960's and early 1970's, was the sight of the remaining black and white Illinois Central diesel locomotives from pre 1967 times, that were still rolling around in daily service.
Seen here is My Life Like, Proto 2000 EMD SW 9 switcher, wearing the pre 1967 Illinois Central Railroad black and white color scheme with the green diamond logo.
