"Heritage Saturday"
Author: aussiehinz

Two out of the three Amtrak long distance trains from the east arrived in Chicago behind specially painted heritage locomotives this morning. Train #30, the "Capitol Limited," was first, behind P42 #130 in its Phase 2 livery. Although #130 is the most recently painted of the Amtrak heritage units, as a replacement for the grade crossing wounded #66, it sports the most battle scarred face of the bunch. An hour later, #49, the "Lake Shore Limited," from New York and Boston, arrived behind Phase 4 #184. A good day to be out and about. Here are some views of the two trains turning, both at "MH" Tower and 18th Street.

Well it looks as if they've finally touched up the rusty spot above the cab windows on 184....
