Remarks & Notes 
A gaggle of normally aspirated locomotives pull an eastbound Chicago Central & Pacific freight by the historic Galena depot on a rainy August 13, 1994. Galena is named after the natural mineral form of lead sulfide, and was mined here, and by 1845, Galena was producing nearly 27,000 tons of lead ore annually. The location also developed as the largest steamboat center on the Mississippi River north of St. Louis, Missouri, and Galena was the home of General Ulysses S. Grant.
