Hello all,<p>Just found this board and what a pleasant surprise !<p>I am the head of the car department at the Fox River Trolley Museum in South Elgin, Illinois.<p>Due to electrical power problems this year we have been forced to use our 1948 70 ton Whitcomb switcher to power our trains.<br>The engine is #73 from the Warren & Saline River RR in Arkansas.<p>Was wondering if anyone here might have some historical background, info, pictures etc of the engine in service ?<br>Any help is appreciated.<p>We expect out electric power to be restored in a couple of weeks, until then everyone is invited out on weekends from 11 to 5 for a "different" type of train ride ! We're on Rte 31 in South Elgin, Ill<br><br>
