A short film of the Q excursions, 5631 in a small town with 5090 idling away, also a Q diesel,  IC 4 GP train passes close by over a small river. 4960 on a winter time run, probably Illinois.

With an IC train, my guess would be East Dubuque, IL.

The IC Geeps were at Galena, IL and the depot at 3:27 is Galena Jct.

The first scene while watering 5632 looks like maybe Aurora, but I am not sure. The next scenes with the train arriving and the 5090 are maybe at Savanna? I would agree with the IC at Galena and maybe the trip up there on the Q branch from Galena Jct.. The winter scenes with Santa and 4960 perhaps a Denrock trip?

It also looks like the home built “Silver Dome” was at the beginning of the video
