I took this photo this past Wednsday night, at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
Seen here entering the Missisippi River bridge section of the club layout, is My circa 1972 representation, of an early merger era Illinois Central Gulf Railroad switching local.
The locomotive is a Life Like Proto 2000 EMD SW 9 switcher in pre 1967 Illinois Central colors and markings. The Gulf, Mobile & Ohio caboose and trailing freight cars are by Athearn.
