CRI&P 101 'Lake Michigan'
Title:  CRI&P 101 'Lake Michigan'
Description:  Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad Business Car #101, 'Lake Michigan' at Colorado Springs, Colorado on August 20, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Business car 101 was built by Pullman as coach 352 during 1950. Around 1953 it appears to have been converted to business car 101, 'Lake Michigan' by the Rock Island. It is seen here on the Colorado Springs section of the Rocky Mountain Rocket. On the left is D&RGW VO-660 72 (built 8/41, c/n 64186) with a 'mixed train'. I arrived (with my parents) on the Colorado Springs connection of CB&Q's Denver Zephyr (DZ), forwarded from Denver to Colorado Springs on the rear of Rio Grande's Train #1, The Royal Gorge. Upon arrival at Colorado Springs, the DZ cars were cut off the Royal Gorge, and the local D&RGW switcher picked them up. The 72 will take the DZ cars and the freight cars it collected during its morning switching and drag them over to the other side of town, where the DZ cars will be serviced, cleaned, and be held for Train #2, The Royal Gorge, for return to Denver, where they will be added to the DZ for return to Chicago.
