Illinois Central Gulf #1, Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL, June 7, 1982, photo by Chuck Zeiler

This photo is in response to a gentleman who remarked about the sideburns of a person in a photo I posted earlier. The sideburns also caught my attention.


I had a second photo I shot after the first and took a closeup look at the original scan, and here it is. It looks like the handing off from one generation to another to me, the gentleman on the left is looking toward the past, and the gentleman on the right is looking toward the future. Or, something like that. Still, those are major sideburns.
Chuck, I inquired about the car from John Pitts. IC expert and modeler extraordinaire and this is what he sent me. "This car was built by P-S in 56 and came to the IC as a shell and was completed in IC's Burnside shops.
Railway Classics came out with the car a couple of years ago
I did a lot of pre-production work for them on this car as well as the Panama Limited set & the City of Miami set.
Nice photo. John".
