B&O E6 1411
Title:  B&O E6 1411
Description:  B&O E6 1411 eastbound on Train Number 6, The Capitol, at 63rd Street, Chicago, Illinois on October 10, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Note the airplane in the upper right, also eastbound. This locomotive was built as E6A 60 in June 1941 (c/n 1328) on EMD Order E388A, and originally shared road number 60 with its E6B mate. It was wrecked in a rear end collision at Dickerson, Maryland on September 24, 1942, rebuilt in-kind by EMD. It was renumbered to 60A during 1950, renumbered back to 60 during mid-April 1952, rebuilt by the B&O during December 1953, renumbered to 1411 during early 1957, out of service by January 1, 1967, sold to EMD during 1967 as trade-in credit on a SD40 order. Within approximately six miles there were five mainline railroad stations on 63rd Street at the time of this photo. This was the middle of the five, situated at 63rd Street (the name of the station) and Oakley Avenue (2300 west), serving the B&O, C&O, and Pere Marquette. The station house was built at ground level before the tracks were elevated and a stairway led to the upper level platforms.
