The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. July 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo this past Wednsday night, at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
Seen here crossing several sections of Atlas bridges put together to represent the Missisippi River bridge on the club layout, is My circa 1972 early merger era representation, of an early Illinois Central Gulf Railroad local freight train.
The Illinois Central and the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroads had merged on August 10th, 1972, and thus became the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad.
Out of view to the right a few box cars back, is a Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad wide vision caboose bringing up the rear of My train.
