Special chartered Amtrak train. The June 8th 1985 Galesburg Illinois Railroad Days Festival.

I took this photo in the city of Galesburg Illinois, way back in June of 1985. I had rode this train from Chicago, wich was a special chartered excursion on behalf of the 20th Century Railroad Club. The locomotive on the head end of our trip...Amtrak # 229 a late 1970's era EMD model F-40 PH passenger diesel locomotive, was adorned with temporary "Galesburg Zephyr" markings, and a taped on logo from Chicago's 20th Century Railroad Club.

It was a hot June day, with lots of fun and family attractions.
