Farmer City Illinois 6th October 1909 on the Illinois Central Railroad (ICRR).
It is clearly a cornfield meet between IC "ten wheeler" 4-6-0 No 308 and a Casey Jones "American" 4-4-0 with a classic tapered boiler. The cabs of 308 and the 4-4-0 have been crushed by the vehicles of their trains. The wrecking train has been brought up behind the 4-4-0.
