Caption: “Amtrak-B&O 1449 gets ready to depart from Central Station in Chicago on 3-5-72.”

March 5, 1972 was the last day any Amtrak trains ran out of Central Station. They then moved to Chicago Union Station where most other Amtrak trains were already based.

Central Station was the main passenger terminal for the Illinois Central Railroad. It stood on the south end of Grant Park. It opened in 1893 and was demolished in 1974.

➺➺⁞ Aaron was getting jealous to an extreme, even by his own standards.  Alexander Hamilton, his friend, his confidant (his lover, once upon a time) practically stolen away by Thomas Jefferson.  This wasn’t even about the endorsement anymore.  The other two men were getting a little personal lately and it filled him with a kind of frustration he couldn’t quite place.

Finally he’d decided to confront Jefferson about it.  He found him sitting in Alexander’s office, of course, because that’s where he spent most of his time these days.  Clearing his throat to make himself known to the other two men, Aaron eyed Alexander before turning his attention to Jefferson.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆❝mr. jefferson– i do hope the two of you aren’t busy.  i’d like a word with you.❞ Not waiting for an answer, he grabbed the man by the arm and practically pulled him out of the room.  Much more aggressive than his usual self, but to be fair, he was quite aggravated at the moment.

Once they were out of earshot from Hamilton (the poor man must have been confused), Aaron let go of his arm - very subtly pushing him away - and glaring.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆❝as you unfortunately have found out,❞ he said in a hushed but angered tone, ❝my… relationship with alexander hamilton has never been strictly business.  that said-❞  He leaned into Jefferson’s face threateningly. ❝are you purposefully trying to provoke me with your behavior?❞

  • Sirius: Bottom line: are you in or are you out?
  • Remus: Well, then I’m out.
  • Sirius: Actually, you’re already in.
  • Remus: Then why would you ask me?
  • Sirius: Because I thought you would go, “I’m in, Padfoot!” and we would have had a really cool moment. But you kinda ruined the whole thing.
