Video: A former G,M & O locomotive pulls a 1970's ICG auto parts train.

I photographed this digital video recently, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.

The Illinois Central Gulf Railroad, was created from the August 10th, 1972 merger, of the former Illinois Central and the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroads.

One of those early circa 1972 or so merger era ICG auto parts trains, is viewed passing by on the club layout. On the point is a Life Like Proto 2000 Series red and white (Late 1960's era) EMD G P 38-2 representing a former Gulf, Mobile & Ohio locomotive recently acquired through merger, leading a string of newer and older cars used in auto parts transport operations.
