Remarks & Notes 
April 30th, 1971 marked the end of most private intercity rail service in the US. Although I was struggling to finish at Circle campus and was scheduled to work that evening I spent most of the day with looking back seems like a small group moving around Chicago stations catching last runs. I know I skipped work at North Suburban Postal facility since I have evening photo of #17 departing Dearborn Station. As part timers we still had annual leave time, those were the days.
