The Kansas City Chief was a train that arrived at 7:30am in Chicago and we see it here, about to cross the south branch of the Chicago River and enter the Dearborn terminal in the south of Chicago’s loop on a brilliant September 1957 morning. This area has been completely redeveloped in the years since.
