CRIP 652
Title:  CRIP 652
Description:  Nine years before becoming famous as the RI's fan-painted Bicentennial unit, we see the RI 652 leading the remnant of the Rocky Mountain Rocket through Pilcher Park between New Lenox and Joliet. From what I understand, the trailers were hauling magazines from a publisher in Des Moines to be shipped out of Chicago. Like the 1275 in photo 2, the 652 survives today, stored outside at Mid-America Car in Kansas City, awaiting restoration (again).
