Illinois Terminal "Class B" electric locomotive #1575 was built in the shops of IT predecessor Illinois Traction System in 1910.  The IT's Class B's and four-truck Class C's comprised one of the largest and most successful fleets of homebuilt electric locomotives in America.  IT #1575 was sold to St. Louis Car Company as a shop switcher after the IT suspended electric freight service, and eventually made its way to the Museum of Transportation.
