Title:  Amtrak 668
Description:  Amtrak Steam Generator Car 668 at Michigan City, Indiana on July 12, 1982, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. For a brief period, Amtrak parked some equipment in Michigan City on some unused track, including some former CB&Q sleepers, I have more photos that I will scan soon. The following is excerpted from utahrails.net.

Number 668 was built in May 1954 as UP E9B 952B (c/n 19288), leased to Amtrak as 1456 in May 1971, sold to Amtrak becoming 456 in November 1973, rebuilt by ICG-Paducah to an unpowered steam generator car 1918, renumbered to Amtrak 668, sold to Providence & Worcester as number 51 in April 1983.
