Remarks & Notes 
This photo was taken at BOB OWEN'S WHISTLE STOP MUSEUM.. Bob purchased the former Washington, Michigan GRAND TRUNK station. He operated a sign painting business in the freight section of the station and turned the waiting room into a museum. Out in back he installed a short length of track. He acquired a caboose and painted it with a GRAND TRUNK logo. He owned a CHICAGO, NORTH SHORE & MILWAUKEE Interurban with the no. 7556 which he put ahead of the caboose. He picked up a partially scrapped locomotive in Canada and turned it into the non-operating steam engine pictured here. After Bob's death the Interurban was traded by the Michigan Transit Museum for a SOUTH SHORE CAR.
