Chicago & North Western railroad No. 1015 is a classic "Atlantic" type 4-4-2 steam locomotive built in 1900 by the Schenectady Locomotive Works for the Chicago & North Western railroad.

This locomotive was used for crack passenger service on the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad.

In 1946 the locomotive was retired from the Chicago & Northwestern railroad and it was put in storage.

Today this locomotive is now a major exhibit at the Museum of Transportation.
