CSS 803 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Title:  CSS 803 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Description:  Originally built by GE for the Soviet Union in 1946, the deal was cancelled due to eroding relations between the countries. Chicago South Shore & South Bend bought 3 of the units. This is the sole surviving operational Little Joe now protected at the Illinois Rwy Museum in Union, IL. The slide lists Hammond as the location but almost looks like Burnham yard across the border. Unknown photographer.

CSS 803 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Title:  CSS 803 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Description:  Here is another b&w photo of Chicago South Shore & South Bend "Little Joe" #803 in the Michigan City yard behind the engine house. It appears to be one of the fan trips that were arranged during the 1960's & 1970's. No photographer was listed for the negative nor was a date given so an approximate date was used.

CSS 803 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Title:  CSS 803 - Chicago South Shore & South Bend
Description:  Another iconic item was this double headed "Little Joe" electric locomotive built by GE in May of 1949, originally ordered by Russia but cancelled, hence the nickname after Joseph Stalin. The unit has the 2-D-D-2 wheel arrangement. Luckily it survives at the Illinois Rwy Museum where it has been lovingly restored to its shiny brilliant orange and silver paint scheme. No date was given for this photo but it appears it was a rail fan trip in the mid-1960's. No photographer listed.
