As seen in many of these photos, and typically, an Amtrak cab-coach car (nicknamed a cabbage car) provides a cab on the Chicago end of the train, with the locomotive on the Milwaukee end. These cabbage cars consist of a rebuilt cab on the chassis of an F40PH locomotive chassis. The train sometimes carries Amtrak express box cars, as did train #341 as shown on 27 November 1999. A friend's observation (February 2000) is that train #332 brings a box car southboud and train #341 brings it back to Milwaukee.
