CEI 4-6-2 #1020 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Title:  CEI 4-6-2 #1020 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Description:  Here is an action shot of the Lima K-3 class 4-6-2 Pacific built in 1923 heading up a passenger train in Chicago, IL. Note the engineer's watchful eye on the track ahead. No date was given but since the tender has the loco number on its side, it has to be after 1941 when the rr dropped the "C&EI" lettering in favor of loco numbers. No photographer was listed either.

CEI 4-6-2 #1019 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Title:  CEI 4-6-2 #1019 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Description:  Nice example of the Lima K-3 4-6-2 Pacific built in January of 1923 for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois. Definitely has a different look than the K-1 & K-2 built by Baldwin and the K-2as built by Alco-Schenectady. No date, location or photographer was listed for the photo. Since the tender wears the loco number, it must have been taken after 1941 when the "C&EI" was replaced with numbers.

Description:  This was the last 4-6-2 Pacific built for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois RR. It was delivered in January of 1923 by the Lima Locomotive Works as a K-3 class member. No date or location was given but since the tender wears the loco number instead of the older style "C&EI" lettering, it was taken after 1941. Photo stamp on the back was "The Garys".
