Being ex-MILW, but obviously with my service 1970-81 long post dating that of 261, I still think to see her coming through Clarendon Hills today reminded that "MY" road has not yet died, even though its existence as an operating railroad ceased June 30, 1985.
Had the sponsors arranged return transportation to Chicago (pooch would have been just fine), I could well have gone myself.
Eighteen cars, and she was hardly "breaking a sweat"; yes, there were two Amtrak P-42's behind, but I believe they were only providing HEP.
You looked just great, old girl!!!!!!!!
