Description

The Illinois Central Railroad Engine 1536, a 2-8-2 Mikado locomotive, is filled with water in Carbondale, Illinois. Loading of coal and water and incidental maintenance takes a steam locomotive about 1 hour. A diesel engine can be fueled from a pump, like the one in the foreground, in 10 minutes or so.
