Streamlined interurban cars, Illinois Terminal Railroad

One of the three new streamlined, electric interurban trains, the "Fort Crevecoeur", delivered to the Illinois Terminal Railroad, by the St. Louis Car Company, is shown above at the terminal in Springfield, Illinois. This appears to be a publicity photo, commissioned by the Illinois Terminal, and put on a post card. It is assumed that the post card was sold in company terminals. The other two trains were named the "City of Decatur" and the "Mound City". (Postcard from the collection of Rick Russell).
