Illinois Train Museum

Part of my trolley ride

One of several huge buildings on the grounds holding trains

Rows and rows and rows of trains

Day #2 in Illinois going on schedule. Cindy & Gin are in for the day, and Ed heard about a train museum about a mile up the road. I get on yea old bike and start out. 3 miles later I find a pretty nifty train museum. Touted as the largest train museum in the USA, after spending about 3 hours on the grounds, a trolley ride, lunch and touring the buildings, I think it ranks as one of the best I've seen. The museum has over 500 pieces of rolling stock in great shape and a lot of it stored inside.

I make it back about 3 PM, take a dip in the KOA non-heated pool and in for a nap. We are heading to Chicago tomorrow - Thursday - check into a hotel and go to our convention on Friday. Thursday we are going downtown Chicago for a look see.
