Soo Line Steam from the Collection of Harold Vollrath

Soo Line L-4 Mikado 1036 at Gladstone, MI.  Originally CI&L (Monon) 505.  Photo taken August 1954. Another Monon engine, the 1036 looks not at all like a Soo Line Mikado. Purchased from Rock Island (Class L-3) and Monon (Class L-4) in 1941 and 1942, these Mikes most likely helped ease motive power crunches during World War II.
