CEI 2-8-0 #229 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois (ex-Frisco?)
Title:  CEI 2-8-0 #229 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois (ex-Frisco?)
Description:  HELP!!! Unusual photo with even stranger notes on the back that are hard to pin down in research. The cab is marked "Frisco" but a C&EI tender which makes me think the loco was recently traded to the C&EI but can't find confirming documentation of a Frisco Consolidation #229. Note on back of the photo states is a class C-39 2-8-0 and also says "To #873 H-S". Again not sure what that means. James Bowie was the photographer and he did photograph a lot of the C&EI roster. Can anyone help on this one???
