Diesel Freight Train

Description

Business from the auto industry and other sources in Detroit, gathered up the preceding day, leaves that metropolis in the early morning on DC-7, a manifest schedule calling for afternoon arrival at Gibson yard on the IHB. This Sunday edition of the train includes mostly empties in its 118-car consist. F units 1663-2404-1612 accelerate past the depot on the block of no. 355, just after leaving Niles yard where the train was doctored a bit during its brief layover.
