It's June in 1975 and we're watching the North Coast Hiawatha flying out of Rondout, IL traveling on Milwaukee Road rails, on its way to Milwaukee, then the Twin Cities, and eventually Seattle. There's an SDP40F along with a "B" E unit up front, and a conventional round end observation car on the tail. In between we can find a blue Great Northern dome car and a Northern Pacific diner.
