Palatine Illinois. The first photo runby location. Photographed during the C&NW / Metra EMD E-8 Last run fantrip from Chicago to Harvard Illinois. Saturday, October 28th , 1989., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph way back in late October of 1989.
The last three early 1950's era EMD model E 8 diesel passenger locomotives remaining on the Metra / Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad commuter lines, are taking their last bow today, on the official last run fantrip from Chicago to Harvard Illinois.
The three locomotives and several bi leval commuter coaches, are viewed at the first lineside photo runby location at Palatine Illinois.
