CB&Q E8 9939A
Title:  CB&Q E8 9939A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9939A on Train Number 10, the eastbound Denver Zephyr (DZ) at Denver, Colorado on August 20, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in January, 1950 (c/n 9677) on EMD Order 2012A, sometime after the March 2, 1970 merger, this locomotive became BN 9939. In December, 1973, it was rebuilt by Morrison Knudsen in Boise, Idaho, returned as BN 9902, although it was actually owned by the West Suburban Mass Transit District and leased to the BN. In December 1992 it was retired and it is now on display at the Saint Louis Museum of Transportation.

This photo opportunity is the result of my parents taking me on a round trip on the Denver Zephyr from Chicago to Colorado Springs in August 1964. While the Colordo Springs Connection cars were cut into the DZ, that took about an hour, I took photos. I spent the next 12 hours behind this locomotive set enjoying the ride back to Chicago.

CB&Q E8 9939A
Title:  CB&Q E8 9939A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9939A eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on January 2, 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. I was in the wrong place at the right time. I noted on the slide mount that the train was crossing the DuPage River just west of Naperville, however I failed to note the train number.
