A recently acquired Lake Superior & Ishpheming Railroad 2-8-0 steam locomotive. The Illinois Railway Museum. Union Illinois USA. 1995.

I took this photo during a 1995 visit, to the Illinois Railway Museum in the town of Union Illinois USA.

Temporarilly parked on the leads to display barn # 8, are recently acquired Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 steam locomotive # 4963, wich was recently acquired from a southside Chicago scrap metal yard. To the right is a former Lake Superior & Ishpheming Railroad heavy 2-8-0 steam locomotive, that was recieving a nice cosmetic restoration at this time.
