The open-ended building to the left appears to a coal hopper unloading point; visible behind the water plug is what appears to be an elevating loader, presumably used to coal the locomotives. The small shed next to the coal loader is likely to be a sand house, also for the locomotive's needs. In at least one instance, heavy repairs were performed for the G&GE by the Burlington at their major engine facility located in nearby Galesburg.
In the right foreground is the G&GE's main track, which leads northward to Victoria Junction, then on westward to Wataga.
Pictures of the enginehouse and water tank in recent years are shown here.
In earlier days, prior to the line's ownership by the Little John Coal Company, the G&GE had another locomotive facility, possibly located at Wataga or at the end of line in Victoria.
