The Joliet Rocket

Written by Allan Hippensteel

The Joliet Rocket departed the Joliet Transportation Center on Sept 15th and 16th and spirited passengers to a private event at LaSalle Street Station in downtown Chicago. These four-and-a-half-hour roundtrips featured a variety of opportunities for passengers to see and hear the excitement of a 1940s steam locomotive as a part of their trip!
During the approximately two-hour layover, the platforms and pavilion were transformed into an exclusive, vintage-themed occasion at LaSalle Street Station for passengers. Guests were asked to dress for the occasion in their best 1940s or 50s look.
