That's my friend Chris Burritt rolling 16mm film as the AFT makes its way into Chicago for display. Alas, Chris passed away in 2008, and I do not know what happened to his film.

Title:  AFT American Freedom Train 1
Description:  American Freedom Train 1 at about Lake Street and Cicero Avenue in Chicago, Illinois on July 27, 1975, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The AFT was routed over the Belt Railway of Chicago to get from the ICG to the C&NW. It is seen here passing under the CTA's Lake Street elevated and is almost at the C&NW's 40th Street yard. The cutoff at the left is the result of my pushing a 36 exposure roll of film to 37. You know I prayed for a CTA train to pass over during this.

The AFT was routed over the Belt Railway of Chicago to get from the ICG to the C&NW. It is seen here passing under the CTA's Lake Street elevated and is almost at the C&NW's 40th Street yard. I would have paid money to have the CTA park a couple of their bicentennial cars on the overpass for this occasion.

AFT 1
Title:  AFT 1
Description:  On July 27, 1975 The American Freedom Train had just arrived in the Chicago area. Upon arrival, it was first wyed (over greased rails at one point) and then hauled to Navy Pier for a few days of exhibition. This photo shows the train after it was turned but before being moved to Navy Pier. At this point the train was awaiting a C&NW switch engine to haul the train backward to Navy Pier. Due to light rails and clearance restrictions, the locomotive was left behind. As I understand it, the locomotive was moved somewhere near the Merchandise Mart for viewing.

Due to clearance issues, light rails, and condition of the track, the locomotive was left at Clinton Street for display while the rest of the American Freedom Train was displayed at Navy Pier, about a half mile behind this location.
