For our next installment, we'll start with some very nearby items.  First, the body of Aurora Birney 87 on a farm along Wagner Road, between Batavia and Warrenville.   Taken Feb. 5, 1966 by Tom Desnoyers.  We've posted pictures of what happened to #85 before.  It's in the CA&E Photo Album, just scroll down.



Then there is the body of Chicago and Joliet Electric #228, a Stone and Webster design, sitting in an auto graveyard in Rockdale.  Photo c. 1956 by Johnnie Williams.

This body was still in existence as recently as 2001.   Photo by Art Peterson.




A couple more pictures of the Kankakee and Urbana car, taken in Urbana Oct. 7, 1961 by George Krambles.



 Farther away, an interurban car body from the Jamestown Westfield and Northwestern, in Jamestown, NY.   Taken in 1967 by W. McCaleb.



And finally, a PEPCO box motor near Bellrose, Oregon.   Taken June 11, 1956 by George Krambles.
