Mike Ondecker and I were in Joliet almost fifty years ago (actually August 12, 1972) when I photographed this westbound at 10.24 A.M. According to Mike's notes, on the point are ATSF 301C, 321A, 313, and 313B.

It does look like 15 but I think it is the summer season, short lived Amtrak Chief, 19. Probably not long before it was discontinued for good.

I concur. Through Joliet mid-late morning (sun angle in photo), No. 19 got to Emporia just before sunset. It came off just after Labor Day 1972.

Ya, I think it is the AmChief #19 also.    I rode #20 LA to CHI and some time latter came home on 17.    I also saw it and got a picture of it in lower Crozier around Valentine and the consist looked just like this one.

A really nice image Bob, not clean and spotless like they were when Santa Fe was in charge. .

That may be the chief equipment set I rode on that July with the short Budd dome and the UP diner
