MILW E9 35A Editors Pick!        
Milwaukee Road E9 35A at Union Station in Chicago, Illinois on February 27, 1966, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Built in May 1956 as 205A (c/n 21611) on EMD Order 2075A, it was renumbered 35A and eventually became Amtrak 409 (First). It is seen here loading passengers as demolition of Union Station continues. The first part was the removal of the train sheds on the north side, exposing the Milwaukee trains to the elements for the first time since the station was completed in 1925. The next step is the removal of everything above street level to make room for glass and steel office buildings on the air rights.
