Amtrak 3 is in the siding at Rowe meeting Amtrak 4 on February 22, 1974. This was the normal meeting place if both trains were on time. As you can see by the mud, this is not an easy place to get to in the winter. Steve and I were in two different locations taking pictures of the meet. I was up near the signal box while Steve was across from the baggage car on number 3. Two middle pictures are on disk 63

Steve got this interesting shot of Amtrak 3 leaving the siding at Rowe. The name Super Chief would be changed to Southwest Limited the next month.
