A wonderful start to the 2023 operating season

May 08, 2023 9:37 PM | Jacob Goldberg (Administrator)

After a great season in 2022 and a busy off-season getting ready, we have now officially begun our 2023 operating season! For our opening day, we ran North Shore car 715 and Chicago Transit Authority car 4451. In addition, we had Chicago Transit Authority cars 40 and 43 and Illinois Central caboose 9648 on static display.

For a little more added excitement, the car department has also been hard at work on Chicago, Aurora, and Elgin car 458 and was performing test runs on the line while we were carrying passengers on 4451 and 715.

After several months of the off-season, we saw many smiling faces today, ready to see railroad history brought to life.
