When was this taken? Is this unit still in service?

The F40C is, in my honest opinion, a better-looking machine than the F40PH...longer, with a cooler-looking nose and windshield.

I've personally seen this nit when I was staying in Attica Illinois on a vacation. I also saw the 4 axle F40s as well. Good shot! Union station is just HUGE

Beautiful Shot, I love the old F40cs. I see #611 quite often

y thanks ^.^
i don't see it as often since i live along the UP-NW line (at the end actually) and that operates out of the OTC, the 611 operates out of Union station, which i don't get to visit as often.

I live along the METRA Milwaukee West line, so I see #611 and #614 a couple times a week.
