PRR E8 5802
Title:  PRR E8 5802
Description:  PRR E8 5802 at Englewood Union Station on the south side of Chicago, Illinois on April 11, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The rails crossing in the foreground belong to the Rock Island. This locomotive was built in July 1952 (c/n 15666) on EMD Order 6354, later it became PC 4281, then Amtrak 289. It is seen here westbound at Englewood Union Station.

This MIGHT be Train 3-71, due at Englewood at 4:00 PM and Chicago Union Station at 4:15 PM, according to the June 1965 issue of the Official Guide. Note that there is a coach in the middle of the consist, suggesting that this may be two trains combined. Train Number 3 originated in Norfolk at 1:05 PM on the N&W, which arrived in Cincinnati at 6:55 AM. It appears that Train Number 71 originated in Pittsburgh, arriving in Cincinnati, and was combined with #3 , leaving 8:25 AM. Train 3-71 arrived in Richmond, Indiana at 9:33 AM and departed at 10:35 AM. There must have been some sort of switching at Richmond, the notes in the Official Guide indicate the following, verbatim, including punctuation:

Number 71 Daily Sleeping car Roanoke to Cincinnati (10 Roomettes 6 Double Bedrooms) (in N&W No. 3). Dining Car (Lounge) on N&W Ry. open late afternoon and evening. Coaches Norfolk to Cinicnnati. Cincinnati to Chicago. Coach Lunch Served between Norwood and Logansport. Another note indicates that Train 3-71 has a Lounge (Bar) Pittsburgh to Richmond (6 Double Bedrooms). (En route from New York to Indianapolis in No. 3) Dining Car ....Pittsburgh to Richmond Coaches .... Pittsburgh to Richmond Richmond to Chicago.

While it was not much as Union Stations go, it was the only one I know that hosted both the PRR's Broadway Limited and the NYC's 20th Century Limited, as well as the Rock Island's Rockets.

PRR E8 5802
Title:  PRR E8 5802
Description:  PRR E8 5802 westbound departing Englewood Union Station on the south side of Chicago, Illinois on April 11, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built in July 1952 (c/n 15666) on EMD Order 6354, later it became PC 4281, then Amtrak 289. It has just left Englewood (Rock Island's platform shed is seen to the left of the locomotive) and will arrive at Chicago's Union Station in about 15 minutes. I believe this to be combined Train Number 3-71, according to the June 1965 Offical Guide. The PRR Employes Timetable No. 2 in effect April 25, 1965 shows it as Train #71. Train #3 was a Pittsburgh to Cincinnati train, Train #71 originated on the N&W and arrived in Cincinnati, was combined with #3, and was a stop-everywhere train all the way to Chicago. Timetable #2 shows (page 48-49) that this train had a lot of U.S. Mail Work scheduled at almost every stop, with the Note E; Train Stops, Mail Received or Delivered, Or Both, or Note CD; Mail Caught And Delivered.
