Illinois Central [Illinois Central Gulf]
Chicago, Illinois
June 3, 1973

The Illinois Central and Amtrak units seen descending the St. Charles Air Line in the preceding slide have now reached the south end of the Union Station trackage in this view from the 18th Street bridge. Although the IC is now Illinois Central Gulf, it's unlikely that this E unit will be repainted for ICG as it probably now belongs to Amtrak and will soon wear Amtrak colors.
