Remarks & Notes 
The combined North Coast Ltd.and Empire Builder is eastbound at the west end of the Portage Yard at signal 178-9 or 178.9 miles west of Chicago Union Station. The ex-CB&Q E8A looking battle worn will endure through the 70's till the second batch of SDP40F's arrive at Amtrak. Don't know if the 9952 was ever purchased by Amtrak or if it was just on a long term lease. Amtrak was only a year old when this photo was taken.
