Wow, 655 sure looks the worse for care. I left the Rock in 1976 for a better future on the UP. I have such beautiful photos of 655 that showed her nice and clean on the Quad Cities Rocket.

Thanks, number 2, looks like fans from an excurion, wondering around taking photos, probably on a service track?

Number one, all the cars look like 40's, early 50's but 60 probably close.  First I wondered about Iowa City but the scan is good and you can make out the ty and looked up the station, later photos are usually in the sun and station probably restored to some extent.
