Iroquois Terminals SW 48
Title:  Iroquois Terminals SW 48
Description:  Iroquois Terminals Inc. SW 48 at Pielet Brothers (scrapper) in McCook, Illinois on an unknown day in June 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. I don't know anything about this locomotive except that it was either an EMC SW (six-hundred horsepower, welded frame) or SC (six-hundred hp, cast frame). The identifying features are the vents at the top of the hood and the sand box on the front. I believe it is number 48, based solely on the headlight. I pulled a closeup of just the headlight and uploaded it so you can judge for yourself. As best I can tell, this locomotive might have been built as Inland Steel (INLX) 43, the only record I can find so far of any locomotive going to the Iroquois Terminals. That record indicates the INLX 43 became Iroquois Terminals 43. There's the problem, I believe this is number 48. I think Iroquois Terminals was part of the Port of Chicago's operations. Until more information comes along, that's what I'll go with. Any help would be appreciated.

Description:  Closeup of Iroquois Terminals SW 48 headlight at McCook, Illinois on an unknown day in June 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This is a closeup of the headlight to help identify the locomotive. Iroquois Terminals acquired a SW from Inland Steel, former INLX 43. This is what I found at trainorders.com: 43 EMC SW 658 2/37 To Iroquois Terminals RR 43, via Lipsett, 4/60
