Chicago & North Western engine 1385, heading the Prosperity Special in the spring of 1982.
1385 was originally built in 1907, and is now owned by the Mid-Continent Railway Museum in North Freedom. This train was sent out in 1982 as a promotional tool for the railroad.
What a magnificent machine.
These photos were taken near the St. Francis, Wisconsin tower (which is to the left of the train in the above photo). They were originally slides I took with my Fujica STX-1 film camera.
