Long Description:
Thanks to Static Railroad Equipment (visit link) for bringing this to my attention. Located near Lincoln Ave & Spring St on a siding at the grain elevators.

Acc'd to Dave's Rail Pages at (visit link) it was formerly "an old MILW steam engine tender."

You can also see a mention on Railpictures.net at (visit link)

Looks like it is somewhat of a teenage hangout spot from the inscriptions on the silo side. Loud yapping dog across the street in fenced in yard did not appreciate my being there.

Visited on the way south to Danville. The optimal road down took me through Indiana, where I passed through a massive new windmill farm.

The caboose is also waymarked.
Is this a display or a maintenance facility location?: Abandoned/Salvage
