SP No. 2
Title:  SP No. 2
Description:  Nearly-new Alcos 200A and 200B bring train No. 2, the eastbound SUNSET, across South Claiborne Avenue, just a couple of minutes from their destination at the Illinois Central's Union Station. On the extreme left is the PANAMA LIMITED's observation car, in the coach yard. This is a somewhat unusual photo of the SUNSET with diesel power and mostly heavyweight cars. The next year, these Alcos would be renumbered 200 and 201, and the train would be completely reequipped with new cars from the Budd Co. (approximate date)
