2-8-0 #302 awaits its fate with the scrapper's torch.
GB&W #302 was built by the American Locomotive Company (Alco) for the Chicago, Peoria & St. Louis Railway in 1913.  The line went bankrupt in the 1920s and the Green bay & Western bought the locomotive, along with sister locomotives for the Ahnapee & Western and Kewaunee, Green Bay & Western.

The locomotive was retired in 1939.  The engine went to the "dead line" in July of that year and was scrapped a few months later.
