Wheres the Century??
Title:  Wheres the Century??
Description:  This classic view from track level of the Board of Trade was a hallmark of La Salle St. Somehow, it loses its grandeur with a group of RTA F 40s, especially to those more accustomed to seeing NYC and Rock Es, and NKP PAs.

Description:  The Rock had by far the most unreliable diesel fleet, so when the RTA was created, the first road to get new power was the Rock. Three of the new F 40s are at La Salle St waiting for the afternoon rush.
