Empire Builder at Glenview

Glenview, Illinois, is the first stop for Amtrak’s westbound Empire Builder.

Depending on which timetable you want to believe, it is either 17 miles (the Empire Builder timetable) or 18 miles (Hiawatha Service timetable) out of Chicago Union Station.

No. 7 is allocated 24 minutes to travel from Union Station to Glenview.

In the photo above, No. 7 has completed its station work in Glenview and is underway toward its next stop in Milwaukee.

This photograph was made in May 1997 when Nos. 7 and 8 carried some head end revenue on the rear.
