AT&SF Chicago Coach Yard, 1975
Author: Hou74-76

December 1975, the AT&SF Chicago coach yard performed contract work for Amtrak.  Trains 15&16, 3&4 and I think the Illinois Zephyr were all serviced, stocked and stored at this yard.  Around back on the store track, sat a former Santa Fe 4-6-6 "Valley" series car renamed to Chief Illini.

I do not remember when the yard was closed.

 Great photos! Today the land is part of an expanded Chinese commumity known as Ping Tom Park...

Got my first passenger job there, as 4th cook on 17-18/3-4.   Washed dishes all the way to LAUPT, but i was happy and very tired.
