El Paso Texas USA 4th November 1978
The stainless steel coaches of Amtrak's well-named Sunset Limited catch the glint of the West Texas sunset during our stop in El Paso station! I was travelling the 2350 miles from San Francisco and there was still another 24 hours to go before arriving home in New Orleans.
Vista Point Moccasin California USA 29th October 1978
On our journey from San Francisco to Yosemite National Park we turned off Highway 120 to Vista Point overlooking Woods Creek in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The car was a rental vehicle. I think it's a 1977 Dodge Aspen 4-door sedan. Can anyone confirm that? HFF & welcome back to Ipernity!
Chicago NorthWestern USA 9th September 1978
The Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad terminus in Chicago was rebuilt in 1984 as the Ogilvie Transportation Center but this view shows the original station in all its gloom. 1953 built C&NW EMD E8 diesel 521 waits departure northwards. These fine engines have since been withdrawn.
