CRI&P E8 644
Title:  CRI&P E8 644
Description:  CRI&P E8 644 at Roosevelt Road, Chicago, Illinois, July 1978, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Many of Rock Island's E units swapped steam generators for HEP units to supply power to the bi-level commuter cars. Number 644 retained its steam generator to supply heat to the older commuter coaches, not needed of course in July, when this photo was taken.

CRI&P E8 644
Title:  CRI&P E8 644
Description:  CRI&P E8 644 at the Rocket House, 47th Street, Chicago, Illinois, September 1979, photo by Chuck Zeiler. By the date of this photo, the Rock Island was all but shut down, one of the unions had walked out on strike for back wages, the suburban service had been taken over by the RTA, the E units were replaced by F40PH's, and the freight service was being operated by the Kansas City Terminal Railway, as directed by the ICC. There is a pipe attached to the steam line on this locomotive, one might speculate that one of the final duties of 644 was as a steam generator at the Rocket House, still used by the RTA to service the new F40PH's.
