An old time CB&Q mail train which was in Princeton a few years ago for a Show.

This is a picture of Starved Rock, ‘The Gilbraltar of
Illinois’. According to tradition, in 1722, some Indians were
marooned here on top of the rock by Fox Indians, but were rescued
by some Frenchmen. Among the Potawa-tomie Indians, legend has it
that a part of the Illinois tribe was besieged on the rock and
starved into submission and annihilated; thus Starved Rock acquired
its name. It is on the Illinois River in LaSalle County. Due to the
historical background and 1.451 acres of scenic of beauty, this
makes Starved Rock a popular place for thousands of visitors each
year.
