Ah....Your tuggin at my heart strings Marty! Beautiful appears to be the 33C on the point as it had a Leslie S2MR on the left side then went into commuter service I believe that same year sans the steam generator for an experimental alternator that ran off the #2 engine. It appears there is a deadhead diner behind the baggage car or possibly two working diners that day for demand. I also see the Conductor leaning out the dutch door on the head coach to get a look at the train order board at St.Croix tower.....and I think the 33C resides at the Illinois Railway Museum as we speak.......I'm still looking for that photo of you leaning out a CB&Q caboose cupola on one of the Q steam excursions back in the early 60's......Tom.

Very cool. That's an angle I've never seen. How many skeeter bites did you get taking this shot?
