Baltimore & Ohio E-9 #1455 and Chesapeake & Ohio E-8 #4012 at Grand Central Station, Chicago, Illinois, February 27, 1966, photo by Chuck Zeiler

Unfortunately, by the time I began photographing trains, Grand Central Station was in its final days. Most of the trains terminating there were already routed to other stations, and this station only saw the B&O and C&O. By the advent of Amtrak, this station fell into disuse and was soon demolished for re-development, but the property sat vacant for over a decade. See the link below for more information.

There was an excellent article about this station in Trains many, many years ago.
