Here’s a scan of the July 1983 edition of The Fast Mail featuring N&W Class J 611 which was the star of Steam Chicago Style which was upcoming that month. Also featured is the Galesburg Zephyr chartered special train run earlier that year on approximately the schedule (out in the morning, back in the evening) of the Carl Sandburg that our group will be taking to Galesburg Railroad Days this year. (The Carl Sandburg did not exist at that time).
