Frederick,
Thanks for posting these pictures. I am building a live steam model of an IC mike and they are a valuable source of info, especially since I am in Virginia and not easy to get to Paducah.

Illinois Central Railroad''s 2-8-2 "Mikado" steam locomotive No.1518 is regarded as the last mainline revenue steam loco operated on the I.C. Now she majestically holds court along First Street in Paducah, Kentucky, USA.

Paducah deserves praise for not caging her behind fencing. You can view her up close and truly appreciate this workhorse of "The Main Line of Mid-America."
