CRI&P's #1 in LaSalle Street Station
Title:  CRI&P's #1 in LaSalle Street Station
Description:  Day approximate, month and year correct. The tall building is the Board of Trade and the darker closer building is the long-gone headhouse replaced by the new Board of Trade Buildng. J. C. Smith, Jr. sent th following comment: "The locomotive is the same design created for General Motor's Aerotrain, but this particular trainset is an ACF-built Talgo, originally called the Jet Rocket. This particular model LWT-1 differs from the two sister locomotives, Rock Island numbers 2 and 3, acquired with the two actual Aerotrains, in that it had a Blomberg front truck, whereas the other two featured a four-wheel Flexi-Coil, similar to those used under some EMD switchers intended for some road service use."

CRI&P LWT-12 2
Title:  CRI&P LWT-12 2
Description:  Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad LWT-12 2 at the Rocket House around 47th Street in Chicago, Illinois on March 28, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in August 1955 as EMD 1001 (c/n 21464) on EMD Order 9002, it was one of two demonstrators the EMD fielded, this one operated on the NYC for several months in 1956 between Cleveland, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois in revenue runs. Later it demonstrated on the Santa Fe and the UP as the City of Las Vegas during the summer of 1957, but the train proved to be underpowered (1,200 horsepower and a single power truck) and required a helper to get over the Cajon Pass.

Returned to EMD, it and demonstrator 1000 were sold to the Rock Island, ending their days in commuter service. A third LWT-12 engine was produced to power Rock Island Line's Talgo Jet Rocket train. Coaches were basically modified GM bus bodies and were known to be rough riders. By 1966, the Aerotrains were out of service, number 1 and coaches were scrapped, numbers 2 and 3 were donated to museums along with a couple of coaches each. This one ended up at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
