WSOR 5 (WF Hall Printing Co.)

WSOR 5 (WF Hall Printing Co.)

WSOR 5 was probably the most unusual motive power on Wisconsin & Southern's roster.  Acquired from the Mid-Continent Railway Museum, the Whitcomb 50-DE-58a-1 retained its "WF Hall Printing Co." paint scheme, and was used to switch the former Badger Munitions trackage.  Deteriorating traction motors eventually caused the unit to be shipped down to Janesville.  The little engine has since gone to Rochelle, IL, former home of Whitcomb.  MW Hintz photo, 10/22/03, Janesville WI
