AMTK SW1 732
Title:  AMTK SW1 732
Description:  Amtrak SW1 732 at Lumber Street in Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in May 1979, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Nearly every PRR passenger and mail train in an out of Chicago's Union Station had to negotiate these rails. This shows part of a complicated switching maneuver in which this train, having arrived in Chicago, is then dragged backward about a mile to clear the 22nd Street Interlocking, then shoved up the former leads to Dearborn Street Station to clear the reverse tracks to the former AT&SF coach yard. At that point, this SW1 will be on the wrong end of the train, as the Santa Fe's facilities were stub end, which is where this train will be shoved in and serviced.

Amtrak SW1 732
Title:  Amtrak SW1 732
Description:  Amtrak SW1 732 at Canal and 16th Street in Chicago, Illinois on June 7, 1982, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. On a hazy Chicago day, Amtrak SW1 732 is about to wye a train through the Union Avenue interlocking. It appears the number 732 was built in May 1949 as NYC SW1 605 (c/n 6411) on EMD Order E999, later became NYC 8431, then PC 8431, then AMTK 245 (2nd) then AMTK 732. In the background is BN NW2 543, delivered to the CB&Q in August 1946 as 9246 (c/n 3642), awaiting its turn through the interlocking. Overhead is a C&NW transfer on the Saint Charles Air Line. This was the Illinois Central's (by this date, the ICG) westward main line through Illinois and Iowa. The name "Air Line" denotes that the rails ran as straight as possible, as if a line was drawn in the air, avoiding as many curves as was possible. The caboose (#12557) was a Rock Island wide vision, but has acquired steel plating over the cupola windows, likely in conformance to FRA glazing regulations.
