||CRI&P's #1 in LaSalle Street Station
||Day approximate, month and year correct. The tall building is the Board of Trade and the darker closer building is the long-gone headhouse replaced by the new Board of Trade Buildng. J. C. Smith, Jr. sent th following comment: "The locomotive is the same design created for General Motor's Aerotrain, but this particular trainset is an ACF-built Talgo, originally called the Jet Rocket. This particular model LWT-1 differs from the two sister locomotives, Rock Island numbers 2 and 3, acquired with the two actual Aerotrains, in that it had a Blomberg front truck, whereas the other two featured a four-wheel Flexi-Coil, similar to those used under some EMD switchers intended for some road service use."
