C&NW SL-144 1198         
C&NW SL-144 1198 at Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in September 1979, photo by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive is pictured on the site of Illinois Central's Central Station, which had been torn down. It is on display as part of a railroad equipment exposition. At the time I was employed as a photographer by a company that occupied the 52nd floor of that tall white building in the background (Standard Oil Building, later the Amoco Building). I happened to look out the window one day and saw all this equipment at what was normally an empty rail yard. Needless to say, I took an extra long lunch break that day. It probably didn't hurt that I was dressed in a sport coat and tie, looking like I belonged there as a company photographer. Number 1198 was one of two demonstrators built by GE in 1974.
