Thank you Doug Norkum for featuring this Image in your FAA Transportation group.

Hello Jeff. I'm not sure when this train arrived in the park. This exhibit and the World War I tank and canon are by the center of the park as you come in. The zoo is on the West side of the park. sister went to ISU in Bloomington-Normal...but I don't recall seeing this engine.

By saying "drive past" the IL Railway Museum I was in Chicago for my 25th high school reunion in October 2012 and visited family in Rockford. Had to stay on schedule....but I did point out the Union, IL exit as we drove past both directions. From the IRM Wikipedia website, it does not appear they have any more live steam engine rides, but they do have one of only two North Shore Electroliner sets in the country.

Just a FYI, I grew up in South Chicago by 87th and Stony Island. My H.S. was J.H. Bowen.

I need to get to travel to more places for steam locomotives...I had to drive past the IL Railway Museum where they (still) have that Frisco 2-6-2 I think. We have two steam engines near here in Pensacola in fenced yards...not easy to photograph. I cannot remember the last time I rode a steam locomotive train....probably a narrow guage up in the Black Hills near Mount Rushmore. I'm really clamoring to ride a mini-steam locomotive....Milwaukee Zoo had a small live steam train, but I was looking for something even smaller scale.

Great collection of steam locomotive photos Thomas--this one is fantastic! ~Jeff

Hello Jeff, Thank you. Coming from a world class traveler and photographer like yourself is very rewarding to me.

Thank you very very much Carolyn.

Love all the railroad images you have. The straight photos are great, but your artistic treatments make them even better in my opinion. V

Thank you so much John for featuring this Digital Artwork in your Railroad Museum Exhibit Group. I have really enjoyed working on this train series of Photographs.

I am familiar with this talented artist, Lenore Senior, and appreciate her work. The towels were much better quality than I expected. So soft and such a beautiful replication of Lenore's artwork. They look great with the wall art I already have in place. I appreciate all the different product forms that FineArtAmerica offers. I have ordered Lenore's work on greeting cards, too, and they were beautiful and of a very good quality. Thank you!
