The shots were taken in the 50's or 60's at a Material Service quarry near Plainfield, Illinois. They are part of a collection inherited by the son of the photographer. If the son says its Illinois, I'll take his word. While the Whitcomb diesel shown may look strange to the USA eye, they were somewhat common on USA shortlines.
