Taken, Menomonie, Wisconsin, Fall 0f 1947.

The Omaha Railroad at Menomonie Wisconsin was located in the Red Cedar river valley, well below the main line which passes through Menomonie Junction. A spur from the junction serviced the main city. All traffic in and out plus any switching to be done was handled by a single I-1 ten-wheeler. It generally did its work at night and spent the day simmering at the end of the spur.

Built by Alco-Schenectady, probably March 1909 C/N possibly 45919.
