Item DescriptionThe Bi-Level "Gallery" commuter car continues to be a favorite design of many commuter rail agencies throughout the United States and Canada. The design made its debut on the Chicago & North Western railroad for their Chicago area commuter service in the 1950s. The Rock Island was a commuter service between Joliet and downtown Chicago. In the late 70's and early 80's, around the time of the formation of the Regional Transit Authority, the Rock Island line was going through bankruptcy and had great difficulty keeping its own locomotives in service. As a result, the Rock Island line was the first to receive the brand new Chicago RTA F40PH locomotives.
