N-1  Chippewa 185
The Chippewa loco was built in 1866, during the Civil War. The details of the builder and specs are not known. When all the C&NW locos lost their names, the Chippewa was numbered 185 instead.  There were other confusing renumberings after that, so the trail on this loco is not complete. It was probably in the group that was scrapped in the late 1880's.  The "Franklin Hotel" is the building in the background, John Hunt collection.
