Walter A. Peters recorded a good deal of Alton Route and GM&O action in the Springfield, Illinois area. Here he captures 4-6-2 No. 5292 crossing the Wabash diamond at Iles Tower, on the south side of Illinois' capital city, on August 1, 1941. Shadows indicate that the train is the Alton Limited, on its southbound afternoon schedule. Gary Thompson contributed this image to our Gallery.
