Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Joliet, Illinois (Joliet Union Station)
June 1, 1973

This train (probably Amtrak's former Santa Fe eastbound Texas Chief) on shared Santa Fe and Gulf, Mobile & Ohio trackage is about to cross Rock Island rails at Joliet Union Station. The presence of such a busy junction made Joliet Union Station an endlessly entertaining location.
