This is a very long post describing the information on this group.

Richard "Dick" Jensen was a steam locomotive preservationist based out of Chicago. In the 1960's and 70's, he saved several steam locomotives from being scrapped. However, Richard Jensen was NOT successful in preserving these engines. It all started with him not paying rent, which led to the demise of CB&Q 4-8-4 #5632. Shortly after, NKP 2-8-2 #965 was lost to the torch.
Dick also owned a 4-6-0, a CB&Q 2-8-2, but his best known engine was the only one he fully restored, Grand Trunk Western 4-6-2 #5629. Dick was severely injured in the late 70's and was unable to pay rent. To make matters worse, 5629 was illegally scrapped in 1987. The CB&Q mikado ended up at The Illinois Railway Museum, while the 4-6-0's whereabouts are unknown at this time. Dick passed away in 1996.
Throughout his life, Richard was never really a "friend" to the railfanning community, and died a unhappy man. However today, more and more rail fans are learning about what a great man he was, so this group is for those who remembered Richard as a steam locomotive fanatic.
