Milwaukee Road EMD FP 45 # 3. Bensenville Illinois. January 18th, 1975.

I found this photo at My Link page Fallen Flags.Org, located to the right of Your computer screen at

The Milwaukee Road, was one of many now fallen flag railroads of the past, that served the greater Chicagoland area.

When the Milwaukee Road discontinued company sponsored passenger trains in 1971 and joined Amtrak, their former EMD FP 45 passenger diesl locomotives, were placed in to freight train operation.

EMD FP 45 # 3 was no longer pulling the Hiawatha passenger trains by the time of this 1975 photo taken in Bensenville Illinois.
