Observation Lounge - the Broadway Limited, 1972 by Steve Brown
In the early years of Amtrak (operating America’s long-haul passenger service starting May 1, 1971) the Broadway Limited was the flagship train between New York and Chicago. This was the observation lounge at the end of the train, a former B & O Capitol Limited lounge car, very recently refurbished (weren’t those 1970’s colors wonderful?). I took this photo during a trip on Memorial Day weekend in 1972 between Harrisburg, PA and Lima, Ohio. View my collections on flickr here: Collections Press “L” for a larger view in black.
LURVVED your comments about "Sandstorm Skipper"! Have you heard the rumor that she and Sam may have had a falling out prior to ECCC? The story goes that she was slated to go up there for more pics of the two of them that weekend, including pics with her parents, who I guess live there. It did not happen (Odd that there were no pics with her parents during The Wedding) Wondered what you thought about that and if you think it had something to do with Sam's "mood" observed in the airport lounge?
