Soo Line Steam from the Collection of Harold
Soo Line O-20 Northern 5001 at Shoreham. Photo taken May 1948.
The four O-20 Northerns of 1939 were Soo Lines only Lima-built steam
power, providing quick freight service between Chicago (Schiller Park) and
Minneapolis (Shoreham), and they were also the largest steam locomotives
obtained by the Soo Line. One almost wonders what would have happened to
Soo steam power development if World War II and dieselization had not occurred.
