While the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Blue Unit train was in Chicago in 1998 I was able to photograph each passenger and large animal car of the train. However, none of the vehicle flat cars were photographed. There are several photos of many cars, taken from various angles. Of the cars photographed, in 1999 the Blue Unit train consist was almost the same, with only one passenger car having been replaced.
