Pictures 14C-3 and 14C-4.
Car 242, the lightweight double truck safety car. As Third Avenue
Railway car no. 1702, and later no. 1250, this car survived long after the
demise of the K&UT. Note the route sign over the right front window,
saying “University Route”. We have a glimpse of the right
of way, probably somewhere between Urbana and Rantoul.
