This monster is the only surviving four-truck electric interurban
locomotive.  Illinois Terminal "Class C" #1595 was homebuilt by IT
predecessor Illinois Traction System in 1910, and is the only surviving
representative of the IT's largest class of electric locomotive.  It was
retired in 1956 and acquired by the Museum of Transportation, which began a complete cosmetic restoration during 2002.
