Soo Line Steam from the Collection of Harold
Rare Soo Line K-20 Atlantic 2911 at Chicago, IL. Originally
WC 268. Photo taken September 1931, making this my oldest photograph
of Soo power. Unfortunately I cannot say for certain why the engine was
in Chicago proper (Soo's nearest yard was in suburban Schiller Park), but
these engines were used for passenger services, so this may be at the roundhouse
of a terminal or railroad station in Chicago, as the 2911 gets ready to
head up the line with another group of Depression-era travelers.
