I have the book. The photo is on page 43. The second Flexi-Van is NYC.
It is shorter in height than the Burlington one on head end of the flat car.

Every so often you find one of those "Holy Grail" photos. I just found
one in the new Morning Sun book on Chicago Intercity Trains (I was at
a train show). According to the caption in the book it is the
Chicago-bound Black Hawk approaching St. Paul Union Depot (SPUD) in
August 1969. You can barely make out the GN roundhouse behind the
curve. It has a single E9A and right behind it is a CB&Q Flexi-Van
flat with two side door Flexi-Vans. The first is clearly Burlington,
but I think the second one is either MILW or NYC since it does not
have the full BURLINGTON side board. Behind the Flexi-Van was a couple
of Havelock baggage cars, then two smooth side silver passenger cars,
then another car I can't make out..
