A waiting car casts a morning shadow on West Washington Street as an operator hands up train orders to a freight swinging onto the Jacksonville line. My brother David took this transparency in November 1969. According to viewer Bob Oliver, who worked at the Bloomington Union Station during the time this photo was taken, the train is likely to be the Jacksonville local, which left in the morning on alternate weekdays. There was also an East Peoria-Bloomington turn that ran to Bloomington at night and returned to its base terminal, the Peoria & Pekin Union facility in East Peoria. The train made the connection to the East Peoria line over the wye track north of San Jose. Since that tran ran during the hours of darkness, any photos of it must be rare. (Thanks to David P. Jordan for the background information on the Peoria train operations.)
