The newly streamlined Nickel Plate Limited stands proud at La Salle Street Station early in 1950, awaiting its late night departure for Buffalo. 1990 OIL PAINTING BY MIKE SCHAFER.


Despite the then-recent BKP-WAB-N&W merger/lease, train CB-12 hot-footing it out of Chicago at State Line Tower in 1965 still portrayed the look of "Nickel Plate High Speed Service" we like to remember. MIKE McBRIDE
