Stopped at Englewood (the train arrived with a boxcar on the rear which was removed before it departed. I didn’t photograph the removal. I may have been watching for Rock Island trains.) The train is on New York Central tracks which curve from paralleling the PRR tracks headed northwest to Union Station to joining the Rock Island tracks heading north to LaSalle Street Station.

These photographs were made the morning of April 21, 1965 as the Nickel Plate’s Train #5, the overnight from Buffalo “City of Chicago”, made its station stop at Englewood Union Station on the south side of Chicago. The train had connections (through coaches) at Buffalo to New York City via the Erie-Lackawanna.

The locomotive was NKP 875 an Alco RS36 built July 1962 in an order of three RS36s with steam generators. She became N&W 2875.

Let’s not forget the NKP was merged into the N&W on October 16, 1964, six months before I took these pictures.
