The Fox River Trolley Museum. South Elgin Illinois. Early September 1990., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page, from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.
I took this photograph way back in early September of 1990, at the Fox River Trolley Museum, which is located in the town of South Elgin Illinois, along the west bank of the Fox River.
Preserved Chicago, North Shore And Milwaukee Railroad electric interban coach # 715, is viewed pewparing for departure from the museum's depot.
At the time of my visit, car # 715 was wearing the original as delivered 1920's era color scheme, which apparently did not weather well and was prone to fading.
The following year, car # 715 entered the museum's shop, and re emerged wearing the Chicago, North Shore And Milwaukee's final color scheme of medium green, with a red letterboard and black roof.
