Madison-Austin


Here I am on a visit to the Illinois State Railway Museum. The museum is about 75 miles west of Chicago, very much out in the middle of nowhere, but barely far enough out for the city traffic to have thinned out. The collections are very extensive with everything from classic steam engines, to streamliners, street cars and classic freight handling equipment. It was a great day out.

  1. we had planned a trip to Chicago last summer, and the railway museum was on the itinerary . . . but the girls stayed in St Louis and we ended up in Ann Arbor . . .

    maybe next summer -
