58 (26) Had Two Surprises For Me
Author: filmteknik

This morning's (Sat 6/27) northbound City of New Orleans, seen at Matteson, IL, had 145, the Phase III Heritage Unit and DOTX 221 FRA Office of Safety.

(Research says this car was originally built by Pullman Standard in 1954 as Canadian National "Cape Brule", a 2 double bedroom 2 compartment buffet-lounge.)

Great video - and good to see my old station (when I lived in Park Forest).  Many a morning's wait on the platform and seeing 58 going by or even better an at-speed meet up the line. Thanks

39019 transition car to give the FRA folks access to the train.  39026 bringing up the rear to give access to the Viewliner baggage.

I think the FRA car is slated to come back south on 59 at the end of July.
