A bread salesman from Wisconsin, Richard Jensen acquired his first steam locomotive, GTW 5629, in 1959 and refurbished it for use in steam fan trips based out of Chicago in the 1960s. Jensen would acquire several other steam locomotives including CB&Q 5632 and 4963 for other excursions. After several cancelled trips in the early 1970s, GTW 5629 sat at the Rock Island's Burr Oak Yard which became owned by Metra after the Rock's demise. After several failed attempts to move the locomotive off of their property, Metra ended up scrapping the unit on site as seen in this photo. Tom Golden photo.
