De Kalb, Illinois

The Greyhound is one of two engines in De Kalb (we have an old 1907 Case with the short smoke box) and it is certainly the most photographed.

IS ON DISPLAY with steam up and lugs off this steam engine traveled from the south edge of DeKalb to Hopkins J. Park yesterday in a rough ride, but a successful one. The equipment, owned jointly by Roy Levine and Charles Raymond was taken from the Levine home to the park where it will be on exhibit Thursday and Friday. Modern pavements of hard surfaces proved rough riding for the engine whose makers made no provisions for springing. The equipment is shown crossing the North Western tracks at 4th and Lincoln Highway. C. F. Kaymona steering, see Mr. Raymond's letter.

Both LeRoy Levine and myself look forward to receiving our copies of the IRON-MEN ALBUM and enjoy the many articles.
