JB, if you like train photographs, you need to go to the O Wilson Link Museum in Roanoke, Va. Big Museum full of his photographs of trains over the years. Amazing place.

Hi guys. If this is the "Zephyr" it is still alive and well at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union Town Il. saw it about 15 years ago in a shed there, and I was thrilled.
If you are into Trains this is a great place to visit.
There are more than 1 streamline trains in the Chicago area. go to the links provided for more info.
I rode on a Burlington streamliner in 1945 from Chicago to Minneapolis. The next year we rode on the Hiawatha on the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific to the Twin Cities. The Hiawatha was a much more comfortable ride and the view from the club car was much better.
I Chased this machine back in the 90's during the N&W steam excursion program brought it through southwest Michigan...
It was an unbelievable experience , sight , sound and smell
