Illinois Terminal Railroad car 1576

Seen in September 1954 with "Buy war bonds" still on the side.  This interurban system lasted 1896 to 1962 but in the last 6 years it was freight only, operated as a diesel powered shortline.  It's clear this boxcab car wasn't used for passengers at any time. A pic of a similar unit now preserved in St Louis is here
