The little engine that did - Engine No. 9 hauled trains from Chicago to Aurora through Hinsdale from 1865 until 1885. According to "Village on the County Line" by Hugh Dugan, it was an experimental engine built in the 1850s that originally burned wood but was converted to burn coal. Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old? We'd love to share it with our readers. Stop by our office at 7 W. First St. or email it to [email protected].
