On the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, we revisit a story about a man who built – from scratch -- a full-size working replica of the 1860’s steam locomotive that pulled Lincoln’s funeral train. When Jay Shefsky introduced us to Dave Kloke in July 2014, Dave and a team of volunteers had finished the locomotive and had begun work on replica of the Lincoln Funeral Car. Chicago Tonight takes a look at the nearly complete Funeral Car.
