Upon moving to Bloomington, Illinois in 1954 we discovered that the Illinois Terminal's Peoria-Decatur line through Bloomington had been abandoned the year before. However a two-block section of South Madison Street remained under wire. Here the Illinois Power Company still used this ex-Illinois Traction steeplecab to switch coal hoppers from a siding on the New York Central's Peoria & Eastern branch to its city power plant adjacent to the tracks. The operation lasted for a few more years, and my brother took this photo of IPC No. 2 in February 1958.
