Waiting For Annie in Joliet

Passengers are lined up on the platform in Joliet, Illinois, as the southbound Ann Rutlege is about to arrive on Oct. 3, 1981.

Joliet is the first stop for Train No. 303, which is en route from Chicago to St. Louis and Kansas City.

If F40PHR No. 386 looks new, it is. EMD built it in August 1981 It was built as a trade in for an SDP40F, in this case No. 531.

I had disembarked not long before this photograph was made from the East Peoria, Illinois, to Chicago Prairie Marksman, a short-lived State of Illinois funded corridor service that would make its final trips the weekend that I traveled.
