CB&Q GP7 225
Title:  CB&Q GP7 225
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP7 225 at Naperville, Illinois on March 31, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This is the East End Way Freight (known as Extra 225 East to the Dispatcher) departing at Naperville after switching the local industries. The train is backing out onto the main, the gentleman on the steps is preparing to throw the switch, and the train will proceed down the rails in the foreground and grab the empties at Boecker Coal and Grain Company. With empties coupled the front of the locomotive, the train will cross all three main tracks of the CB&Q, grab the empties at Moser Lumber (round top building in the background), and with serveal empty cars coupled to the front, 225 and crew will perform a flying switch to get all those empties behind the locomotive. With the train in order, Extra 225 East will head toward Downers Grove for more switching.

CB&Q GP7 225
Title:  CB&Q GP7 225
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP7 225 eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on April 8, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in September 1951 (c/n 14689) on EMD Order 5072, it became BN 1581 and was retired in November 1981. It is seen here as Extra 225 East, the East End Way Freight leaving Naperville and heading toward Downers Grove. This train switched the industries between Eola and Congress Park. This particular GP7 was one of a few that was not equipped with a steam generator, and in this case, a large concrete block occupies the short hood to ballast the front truck.
