Is it worth saving? Seems to me this car is rolling history!

I took a roll through the hood yesterday to see if I could find these. Finally found them off Avon St. in behind the old Nicor yard. I grew up off of West State St. and kinda figured they were some where in the Kilburn St area.

This car was last used on a work train, most likely a wrecking train.

Sam D. - Just saw this photo and had to comment: Sam D. - Interesting photo, and a lucky find of some old relics of the Milwaukee Road. Todd Boyer - this photo was posted in 2008, I just took a tour of this area via Google Maps, and street level viewing - and in 2016 when the satellite imagery was updated, as well as the street mapping via the Google car - the old Milwaukee Road relics are no longer in this location. The area is bare, and the equipment has either been moved or sadly scrapped. Still - a good find of rare equipment. Hopefully the equipment was taken to the Illinois Museum. I hope so!
