I took this photograph recently, at the Oak Park Society of Model
Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club in Oak Park Illinois.
My good friend and fellow club member Jason, was running his
really long 1960's era Great Northern Railroad freight train, which
just like the prototype, had several cars from then affiliate railroad
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy coupled aboard.
Trains with cars like the ones in the picture, were a common
everyday site in Chicago and the Twin Cities during the 1960's.
