EL E8 813
Title:  EL E8 813
Description:  Erie Lackawanna Railroad E8 813 at 47th Street in Chicago, Illinois on October 31, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. It is seen here passing the 47th Street station heading the daily Train No. 5, The World's Fair (also known as the Lake Cities), having departed New York City's Rockefeller Center Terminal at 6:40 PM (motor coach and ferry to Hoboken, New Jersey), departing Hoboken at 7:30 PM, and if all goes well, it will arrive at Chicago's Dearborn Street Station at 4:05 PM, a little over 23 hours and one time zone later. The last time the EL's predecessor, the ERIE, used the station was September 29, 1935. I believe this was a Union Station, serving several railroads (Erie, Wabash, Monon, C&EI, and I think the C&WI had a single commuter train), I'm researching that. It appears to have been built in 1906, demolished in the 1990's. The September 15, 1906 Railway And Engineering Review states the following:

It will be remembered (from the March 17, 1906 issue) that the station is of Bedford lime stone roofed in slate. The tracks on either side of the building are for passenger traffic, being spread 70 feet apart, to provide room for the building. The main waiting room of this station is 30X70 feet, occupying the whole width of the building, between the women's waiting room at the extreme north of the building and the ticket office at the south end of this building.The floor of this room is composition tile, the walls are finished in tile, and the ceiling is plastered between false beams.
