"Casey" Page has seen these tracks a few times.

As I recall. the Jeanblanc brothers once owned  (tracks and elevator) in Lee Center.  The little puffer belly locomotive  pulled grain cars.  Ferd Jeanblanc was the engineer  to Amboy and back.  Later the Lee Co Grain used these tracks still and my bil Voris Page engineered this train I believe, and was dubbed the name "Casey"  Interestingly, my grandmother was pictured putting a pike into this railroad in Lee Center. Also my mother June Wellman was head bookkeeper for Lee Co Grain many years.  They lived on a farm nearby the tracks between Amboy and Lee Center.( later owned by Bob and Jackie Delhotel
