Commumuter train passing Rondout Tower Commumuter train with engine 42

I had always wanted to go to Rondout, IL in the hope of seeing some Elgin, Joliet, & Eastern operations. Ruth and I were on our way to see a friend in Milwaukee and we stopped at the tower on the afternoon of May 20, 1983. We didn't see any EJ&E trains but we did manage to catch a couple commuter trains. The train is slowing to track the crossover and then head out on the Fox Lake Sub line to Fox Lake. The first train had engine 42 and the second engine 127. Disk 110
