Wintertime at the Fox River Trolley Museum. South Elgin Illinois. December 2007., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I was passing through the town of South Elgin Illinois one winter afternoon back in December of 2007, and just couldn't resist the opportunity to photograph some of the equipment at the Fox River Trolley Museum, which was already closed for the season.
Chicago's first CTA 6000 series lightweight rapid transit cars from the early 1950's, and several other pieces of electric interurban railway equipment, are on display for all to see, ride and enjoy during the museum's operating season begining in May, and operating to the end of October. Sometimes December Christmas holiday special trains are run here as well.
