IT no. 271, one of the longest cars on the roster, turns from Main
Street in Champaign into Neil on its way to the electrified Wabash and Illinois Central
tracks which will start it west on its way to Decatur. The date is 1936,
toward the end of all street running in Champaign. Note the partially completed
new city building in the background, and in the lower picture, the early model traffic
light governing the intersection.
