Last Night for the Broadway Limited in Chicago

In its final years, Amtrak’s Broadway Limited was the last train of the day to depart Chicago Union Station from the south boarding gates.

That was a far cry from its glory days during under the Pennsylvania Railroad when its department was late afternoon and much more heralded.

It is Sept. 9, 1995, and No. 41 is departing Chicago for the final time. Tomorrow Nos. 40 and 41 will be discontinued between Pittsburgh and Chicago and renamed the Three Rivers east between Pittsburgh and New York.
