Remarks & Notes 
At the time of this photo the Illinois Central had been under CN control for about a month, but things still look like the old IC as this local heads south on the Grenada District behind a pair of GP11's. Those head cars with "pulpwood loaded the old fashioned way" made it even better. The lead unit, IC 8733, is preserved at the Monticello Railway Museum today.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
