Wisconsin Great Northern is the group restoring the Mark Twain Zephyr. The three pieces came from an RV park in South Beloit IL. The wide vision caboose was never a Milwaukee Road caboose but apparently was originally Soo Line. https://www.facebook.com/nick.turinetti ... 7032647502

A side rod GE and by looking at the deck plate thickness it's probably no more than a 45 tonner. Seems a lot of the side rod locos were 45 tons.

This 2006 local news article indicates that the locomotive came from the Elmhurst Stone company.

Hi all
Well with the help of a few posts, and the newspaper story, I was able to find out the origin of the diesel locomotive, and also Don's depot website did help with more information and photos.
