Illinois - Silver Creek & Stephenson Railroad

Freeport, IL - The Silver Creek and Stephenson Railroad of Freeport, Illinois is a not-for-profit educational organization, preserving America's historical railroad heritage.

In 1982 the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club purchased its 1912, 36 ton Heisler logging locomotive.

Upon arrival in Freeport it was stored and periodically displayed for four years in the clubs building on the Stephenson County Fairgrounds.

On July 5, 1983 after the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad went bankrupt, our Club purchased 1.72 miles of its right-of-way, which runs diagonally from Walnut and Lamb roads to Baileyville road.
