The Oak Park IL Society of Model Engineers.

I photographed this digital live sound video during a recent visit to The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.

The nice thing about being in a club like that You may never know
what kind of a pleasant surprise can be seen operating on the club's layout.

Fellow member Rich, owns and operates these beautiful sound equipped Broadway Limited Imports models, of Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad EMD E 7 passenger locomotives.

These two locomotives, are viewed pulling a short Burlington coal train across the Missisippi River bridge on the club layout.

Although EMD E series cab unit locomotives were normally assigned to passenger trains, railroads like the Erie Lackawanna, The Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, the Union Pacific, and the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy would occasionally press these in to freight service
if needed.
