  • Lincoln funeral train replica nears finish in Elgin Feb 12, 2015 5:14 PM
    A 6-year effort to build a replica of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train car is reaching a near-fever pitch, but funding for a commemorative Washington-to-Springfield trip is $100,000 short of the goal. Master mechanic David Kloke of Bartlett is confident the funeral car will be done in time, he says, but fundraising for the re-enactment of the funeral trip the assassinated president made in 1865 — has fallen far short of expectations. “Lincoln was one of the most famous presidents. You'd think this would have been more popular, but we had trouble finding sponsors,” said Kloke, who's building the replica in Elgin. “This should have been a cake walk. Ten years ago, 15 years ago, maybe it would have been.”
