If you live in the Chicago area, you may already know Oliver "Ollie" Tibbles, pictured above.

If not, you might think this is a picture of a locomotive (Metra #401 to be exact).

While that's an understandable mistake, you would in fact be wrong.

This is a picture of (perpetual) 7-year old Oliver "Ollie" Tibbles.
