MILW F40C 49
Title:  MILW F40C 49
Description:  MILW F40C 49 westbound at about Paulina Avenue in Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in October 1979, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The bridge was the Chicago Transit Authority (built in 1895 by the Metropolitan West Side Elevated Railroad Company) Northwest branch, removed and all but abandon after the Congress (Eisenhower) Expressway was completed around 1958. This bridge remained because the Milwaukee Road and the C&NW had installed signals on the structure.

Two Sun Bleached Noses After Years of Facing West
Title:  Two Sun Bleached Noses After Years of Facing West
Description:  Taken three miles west of State Street at Western Avenue Interlocking where the Milwaukee Road tracks from Union Station turn to the north and in the process cross the CNW tracks from its downtown station. Note the double-slip switches and the different signal heads for each road. #49 had an outbound train while #54 was inbound and had just left the interlocking plant. The tall white building in the background was the Standard Oil Building (Big Stan) a couple blocks east of State Street. Big Stan is now called the Aon Center but remains the third tallest building in the United States.
