Early 1970's era Illinois Central Gulf R R switching local passing through the town of Clinton., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
The former Illinois Central Gulf, is one of many railroads I had seen on a daily basis growing up in Chicago during the 1970's.
Although I physically "Can't bring it back", I enjoy modeling it in H.O Scale. In this photograph, I have recreated a typical early merger era ( 1972) Illinois Central Gulf Railroad freight train, as I fondly remember seeing them back in the day.
I took this photograph last week Wednsday night, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club in Oak Park Illinois.
