CRI&P E8 653
Title:  CRI&P E8 653
Description:  Rock Island E8 653 at Denver, Colorado on August 26, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. According to the June 1965 edition of The Official Guide, this was the Denver section of the Rocky Mountain Rocket backing into Union Station in preparation for its 11:30 AM ( Mountain Standard Time ) departure. This was the only First Class Rock Island train scheduled to reach Denver. Also departing at 11:30 AM was the Colorado Springs section of the same train, and both will become one train at Limon, Colorado, Train # 8, the eastbound Rocky Mountain Rocket, arriving in Chicago the next morning at 8:45 AM CST. The sleeper, diner, and club-lounge cars as well as about half of the chair cars went to Denver, with only chair cars going to Colorado Springs.
