The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. Wednsday night, June 29th, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo recently, during a Wednsday night operating session at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
The club meets on Monday and Wednsday evenings from 7:00 until 9:00 PM, in the basement of the Oak Park Public Library / Dole Learning Center Building, located at 255 West Augusta Boulevard in west suburban Oak Park Illinois.
Seen here is one of My trains, wich represents an early merger era freight train of the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad circa 1972. A Life Like Proto 2000 EMD SW 9 switcher in pre 1967 Illinois Central colors and markings, combined with a red Gulf, Mobile & Ohio wide vision caboose...help capture the look and feel of a recently merged railroad.
