Action at Aurora

At the Burlington Route’s station in Aurora, Ill., on a February 1946 day, Pacific 2850 pulls away from a string of suburban cars as two trains stand on other tracks. In the middle is a 22-car empty troop train waiting for a locomotive to take it west, while at left is the eastbound North Coast Limited.
