Various Amtrak trains leaving Chicago Union Station as seen from Roosevelt Road in June 1973.

These C&NW and Santa Fe locomotives were inherited by Amtrak when it was formed in 1971. Prior to Amtrak, these would not have been seen here, but at North Western Terminal or Dearborn Station.

Note the massive Pennsylvania Railroad Freight House in the background in the top three photos. It was no longer in use at this time, and would be demolished within the next year.
