Digital Live Sound Video: A 1970's era ICG traain being pulled by a former G,M & O engine. a video by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I have fond memories of the many railroads that once served Chicago, and are now unfortunately long gone. One of my southside Chicago favorites, was the former Illinois Central Gulf.
Although I can not bring back the prototype ICG, I can recreate it in H.O Scale.
My 1970's era ICG train shown here, features a former Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad red EMD model GP 38-2 roadswitcher acquired from the August 10th, 1972 merger, that wasn't repainted yet. The cars in tow like the blue Rock Island air slide covered hopper, makes this train represent a mid 1970's ICG freight train as they may have looked like.
