Soo Line Steam from the Collection of Harold Vollrath

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.
