AT&SF F7 46C
Title:  AT&SF F7 46C
Description:  AT&SF F7 46C westbound at Joliet, Illinois, July 11, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Number 46C was built as the trailing cab of A-B-B-A locomotive 46 in October 1952 (c/n 17317) on EMD Order 6454. It was renumbered to 300C and leased to Amtrak in June 1971, returned to the AT&SF around October 1973. It was rebuilt to CF7 2543 in November 1973, later becoming INRD 2543. It is seen here leading the second section of Train #23, The Grand Canyon. Since it displays green flags, one would suppose that there is another section of #23 following.

My notes indicate that this is the second section of Train #23, The Grand Canyon. Since it displays green flags, one would suppose that there is another section of #23 following. According to the June 1965 edition of The Official Guide, Train Number 23, The Grand Canyon, via La Junta, departed Dearborn Street Station daily at 11:00 AM CST, arriving in Los Angeles two days later at 6:30 PM. The following is verbatim, including punctuation, from The Official Guide: No. 23 Daily. The Grand Canyon. Pullman and Chair Car Service. Dormitory Lounge Car . . Chicago to Winslow. Sleeping Cars . . Chicago to Los Angeles 6 Sections, 6 Roomettes, 4 Double Bedrooms (Car 237.) Dallas to Los Angeles 10 Roomettes, 3 Double Bedrooms, 2 Compartments (On No. 12-77-75-I Dallas to Barstow.) (Car 231.) Dining Car . . . . Chicago to Winslow. (Fred Harvey Service.)
