I was looking at the recent photo posts on this very interesting vintage photo website, and I thought that these 2 photos of C&NW subjects were worth (re)posting here:

First off is a Jack Delano Kodachrome from December 1942, taken in the room housing the paint sample library at 40th Street Yard. (And you wonder why it's so hard to decide which tone of "boxcar red" is correct for your preserved rolling stock?)

Second is a circa 1899 view of the station in Elmhurst, IL.
