1955 Corfu Work Train

A work train, pulled by the Milwaukee’s distinctive boxcab locomotives, passes Corfu in 1951, on its way to a repair job. The caboose, with the distinctive horizontal ribbing, was one of many built by the Milwaukee in its own shops.  As for Corfu, only the mainline exists here now, not having had any trains pass by for a few decades.
