AT&SF E8m 81
Title:  AT&SF E8m 81
Description:  AT&SF E8m 81L at La Junta, Colorado on August 17, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in June 1937 as E1B 2B (c/n 663) on EMC Order E181-A, renumbered to 2A in April 1940. It was rebuilt in December 1952 to E8m 81L, rated at 2000 horsepower due to the re-use of some of the E1B components. It was traded to EMD during 1970 on an order of GP38's. It is seen here heading daily Train 201-28, La Junta to Denver by way of Pueblo and Colorado Springs, connecting with The Chief at La Junta.

AT&SF E8m 81
Title:  AT&SF E8m 81
Description:  AT&SF E8m 81L at La Junta, Colorado, August 17, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Look carefully and you will see the letter L painted in the yellow band just below the nose door. This is Train 201-28, the Denver Connection for The Chief, departing La Junta for Denver at 1:05 PM. I recorded on the slide that this train was named the Denver Streamliner, I don't know how accurate that is, and I cannot verify it. The eastbound Chief arrived at La Junta at 12:30 PM. If you arrived on the westbound Chief, you had about a 12 hour layover as the westbound arrived at La Junta at 12:30 AM. The southbound counterpart of this train was Number 27-190, departing Denver at 8:00 PM, arriving at La Junta at 11:30 PM, in time for the westbound Chief.
