Evening Commuter by classictrains Evening Commuter by classictrains
Yet another photo of the NorthWestern's fleet of Pullman-Standard gallery cars and it's ubiquitous F7's. Today this is the UP West Line, the F's are gone but I saw 2 of these cars repainted in Metra colours last week!

I rode these trains to school for two years (1967-68) and still have all the monthly passes. I remember sitting in the back corner seat on the upper deck (taking both spaces) and getting most of my homework done on the trips in and out.

I rode these cars a lot in high school. At that time, Metra was in the process of switching them from orange and brown to red and blue. They still look best with C&NW's green and yellow though...even if it's Packers colors...

Wish I could still ride one of those to work. I rode the north line. It was sooo comfortable to get on when the temperature and humidity were high because it was always nice and cool inside. I liked to ride the upper level for the view.

No. It was done in only a few cases. What I find amazing is that I can't find a picture of one though I'm certain I took one. (That's 3 photos I remember but can't find.)
