Art Peterson just sent us some great color pictures of equipment at North Chicago. Most of these cars have since been restored and operated at Union. Enjoy, and thanks, Art!

The 309 in April 1964, undergoing some restoration work. To the left is the Class B, on the right a corner of the 1024.
The 321, not yet repainted. To the left is the 277 and the 0-6-0T, on the right one of the North Shore snow sweepers.
North Shore sweeper #21 in May 1955, disguised as CHF 238. This was never part of the IRM collection. In the background at left is the 354.
The 1024 (24) with a chimney, in April 1964. Stoves for heating were not uncommon, until the 309 caught fire.
The 65 with its Crandic skirts, being prepared for repainting in September 1955. On the left is one of the cranes that were scrapped to help pay for the move to Union.
In November 1962, the 277 has just been spray-painted.
