CB&Q E7 9920A
Title:  CB&Q E7 9920A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E7 9920A at the Eola Reclamation Plant on October 11, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This is the cab and first prime mover roof section of CB&Q E7 9920A (built in November 1945, c/n 2946), the lead locomotive of CB&Q Train Number 3, which struck a standing detouring Rock Island train at Mongomery, Illinois on September 27, 1964. The following is part of the ICC accident report:

The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad (CRI&P) is connected to the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (CB&Q) at Ottawa, Ill., which is on the Streator Branch 41 miles west of Montgomery. A few days before the accident, CRI&P trains started detouring over the CB&Q tracks between Ottawa and Chicago because of a defective CRI&P bridge over the Des Plaines River at Joliet, Ill. Some time before 8:45 p.m. on the day of the accident, CRI&P passenger trains No.4 and No. 10 were combined at Ottawa to detour eastward over the CB&Q to Chicago, via Montgomery interlocking. This combined train, consisting of six CRI&P diesel-electric units and 19 cars, operated on the CB&Q as Extra RI 656 East. It left Ottawa at 8:45 p.m. with a CRI&P engine crew, a CB&Q engineer-pilot, and a CB&Q road foreman of engines in the control compartment at the front of the locomotive. A CB&Q conductor-pilot and a CRI&P train crew were at various locations in the cars.

Approximately 2 hours after leaving Ottawa, Extra RI 656 East arrived at Montgomery interlocking, where it stopped on the Streator Branch main track with the front end 675 feet west of switch 14 and 195 feet west of signal 24-23, which indicated Stop. About the same time, the men on the locomotive saw a detouring westbound CRI&P passenger train, Extra RI 634 West, stopped on track No. 1 east of the interlocking station. A few minutes later, they saw the headlight of No.3, a west-bound CB&Q passenger train, approaching on track No.2 and surmised that their train would be routed eastward on track No.2 after No. 3 passed. While Extra RI 656 East was waiting for No.3 to pass, a warning device sounded in the control compartment of the first diesel-electric unit and the CRI&P fireman went into the engine room of this unit to determine why the warning device had sounded. Immediately after the fireman left the control compartment, the CB&Q road foreman of engines noticed No.3 had been diverted to the Streator Branch main track at switch 14 and was closely approaching at high speed. He promptly called a warning to the CRI&P and CB&Q engineers and ran to a side door of the control compartment, where he started to jump from the locomotive. Before he could jump, however, No.3 struck the front end of Extra RI 656 East, killing the CRI&P engineer and the CB&Q engineer-pilot. The CB&Q road foreman of engines and the CRI&P fireman were injured.

Number 3, a westbound first-class passenger train, consisting of 3 diesel-electric units and 15 cars, left Aurora at 10:45 p.m., 3 minutes late, and proceeded westward on track No.2. A few minutes later, it approached Montgomery interlocking at 63 miles per hour, as indicated by the speed recording tape. The engineer and fireman were in the control compartment at the front of the locomotive, and the other crew members were at various locations in the cars. Signal 5-3 indicated Proceed as the train approached Montgomery interlocking, and this indicated to the enginemen that the route was lined for movement of No.3 through the interlocking on track No.2. The route, however was improperly lined for movement of No.3 from track No.2 to the Streator Branch main track, via switch 14. The engineer apparently first became aware of this when the train reached the area of the interlocking station at which time he initiated an emergency brake application. A few moments later, the train passed the interlocking station, entered the Streator Branch main track at switch 14 and, while moving at 52 miles per hour, struck the front end of Extra RI 656 East.

C&EI FP7 1601
Title:  C&EI FP7 1601
Description:  Chicago & Eastern Illinois FP7 1601 at 47th Street in Chicago, Illinois on October 31, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 1601 was built in August 1949 (c/n 7536) on EMD Order E1076, renumbered to C&EI 934, becoming L&N 671 sometime after February 2, 1968.

This is combined Train 93-5, The Georgian (#93) and The Humming Bird (#5), departing Dearborn Station daily at 3:45 PM, arriving at Evansville, Indiana at 9:55 PM, where it is handed over to the L&N and continues on to Nashville, Tennessee. At Nashville, it is broken into individual trains, with #93 continuing on to Atlanta, Georgia and #5 continuing on to New Orleans, Louisiana. The June 1965 edition of The Official Guide lists a Sleeping Car included for #93 (4 Section, 4 Roomette, 5 Double Bedroom), as well as a Sleeping Car for #5 (10 Roomette, 6 Double Bedroom), a Club Lounge, a Dining Car, and unreserved seat Coaches.

CB&Q 9903
Title:  CB&Q 9903
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 9903 at Saint Joseph, Missouri on an unknown day in June 1956, Kodachrome by Dick Rumbolz, Chuck Zeiler collection. Ordered in March 1935 and delivered in October, it was virtually a duplicate of the original Zephyr 9900, later renamed the Pioneer Zephyr. It was powered by a Winton eight cylinder in-line 600 horsepower Model 201A diesel power plant. It entered service on October 28, 1935 on the 442 mile daily round trip between Saint Louis, Missouri and Burlington, Iowa, the assignment for which it had been designed and built. The entire train was named after Mark Twain characters in keeping with the train's assignment location along the Mississippi River. The power unit, which also contained the RPO, was named "Injun Joe" , a homonym for "engine". Increased passenger loads added a fourth car, and the cars were named "Becky Thatcher", "Huck Finn" and "Tom Sawyer". This trainset, as the Mark Twain Zephyr and later as the Ozark State Zephyr and finally as the Mark Train Zephyr (again), spent its entire career in Missouri and Iowa, except one turn as the Advance Denver Zephyr on May 31, 1936. It was retired in May 1958, sold to Frank Dashner (to be used as a restaurant), who died, and his estate sold the train to Midwest Old Threshers Association. It was sold again to a Kansas City banker who planned to sell it to interests in Saudia Arabia, but the banker died and it was sold again. It continues to change hands as of this upload date, and remains unrestored and deteriorating.

CSS&SB GP7 1504
Title:  CSS&SB GP7 1504
Description:  Chicago South Shore & South Bend Railroad GP7 1504 at Michigan City, Indiana on an unknown day in October 1978, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Number 1504 was built in November 1951 as C&O GP7 5764 (c/n 15270) on EMD Order 5085. In late 1966 the Interstate Commerce Commission granted approval for the Chesapeake & Ohio to purchase the South Shore. This transaction was completed in 1967, and several GP7's were transferred to that property. Bethlehem Steel would not allow electric locomotives into their facility so diesels were required. Several more Geeps came from C&O to replace aging electric locomotives. These Geeps wore the solid blue with yellow trim of C&O and were numbered 1501 to 1508, a reflection of their horsepower rating. They carried the South Shore logo on their car bodies, no reference to parent C&O other than the colors. Number 5764 became 1504 on the South Shore, returning to the C&O in 1977 and renumbered back to 5764, sold for scrap in 1986. In 1984 the Venango River Corporation purchased the South Shore from Chessie System.

UP GP40 509 George's Creek
Title:  UP GP40 509 George's Creek
Description:  Union Pacific Railroad GP40 509 and 502 at Yellville, Arkansas on December 11, 1983, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 509 appears to have been originally MKT GP40 203. It is pictured on the George's Creek bridge, the original bridge structure was built in April 1903, a 1900 foot long, 60 foot high wood trestle, built to accept engines weighing 86 tons, and in 1903 there was no highway below it. I'm researching when the steel replacement was built, sometime in the 1930's. Previous to the steel replacement, the speed restriction on the wood trestle was 12 mph. Quote from Mike Adams book: "One of the more far reaching programs outlined in 1915 was to fill in 47 of the 57 high trestles between Cotter and Crane. The other 10 would be re-built as steel and concrete trestles. The original trestles were built with the best grade of wood but their useful life was approaching an end. As work progressed it became apparent that earthen fill was the best method, and eventually only four of the great trestles were re-built with steel although some were a combination of fill and steel due to circumstances. Work started in 1915 and was not completed for another 20 years. The longest bridge, that spanned the George's Creek Valley, was 1900 feet long." The bridge is perhaps 50 years old by the time of the photograph, and crosses over a highway, which in turn crosses over a creek. There are several triple crossings of this nature in the US, here is one. Most of this information is from the book, 'The White River Railway', by Walter (Mike) Adams.

D&RGW PA1 6011
Title:  D&RGW PA1 6011
Description:  D&RGW PA1 6011 at Salida, Colorado on August 25, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 6011 was built in April 1947 as D&RGW PA1 601A (c/n 74686), was renumbered to 6011 March 6, 1950, traded to EMD on an SD45 order December 20, 1967. It is seen here having arrived in Salida as Train #1, The Royal Gorge. Train #1 left Denver at 9:00 AM with a couple of cars from CB&Q's Denver Zephyr attached. The Zephyr cars were cut off at Colorado Springs and the train continued on to Pueblo where it met its counterpart, Train #2. Train #2 will pick up the Zephyr cars left by #1 and return them to Denver. This train continued on to Salida and will return as #2 departing Salida the next day at 9:00 AM.

MP GP38-2 2010
Title:  MP GP38-2 2010
Description:  A friendly wave from MP GP38-2 2010 northbound crossing the White River at Cotter, Arkansas on July 17, 1986, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This train arrived in Cotter with the trailing UP (#903) locomotive leading. The MP GP38-2 was added to the train to help on the 1% grade north out of Cotter.

Also pictured is the bridge over the White River, approved for construction on May 25, 1903. The Army Corps of Engineers determined that the White River was a navigable stream, so a turn span 285 feet long was designed into the 1091 foot long bridge (not including the short five panel timber approaches at each end). A contract was let out to the Phoenix Bridge Company, and the materials for construction were floated up the river on steamboat-powered barges. By June 1, 1904 the bridge was in service after a minor setback on March 24, 1904 when a flash flood caused a 27 foot rise in the river washing away the false work under one of the 80 foot girder spans, dropping the span into the river. The turn span was not yet complete, lacking the turning machinery. By June 20, 1904 the turn span was completed, tested, and never turned again. The arrival of the railroad in Cotter all but killed off the river barge business. Typical power north of Cotter in MP's steam era was double-headed 2-8-0's.

D&RGW F7 5654
Title:  D&RGW F7 5654
Description:  D&RGW F7 5654 and T&P E8 33 at Denver Union Station on August 20, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 5654 was built in June 1950 (c/n 11406) on EMD Order 6093, sold to Alaska Railroad during May 1970, becoming ARR 1530, was wrecked in 1975, rebuilt in 1976, retired in 1986, sent to Mountain Diesel and scrapped during 1990. Here's a quote from Joseph A. Strapac's book, Rio Grande Diesels - Vol. 1:

Rio Grande passenger trains #3 and #4 were in actuality a contract service for the Missouri Pacific so that its 'Colorado Eagle' train could reach Denver, rather than terminate with the MP freight trains in Pueblo, Colorado. Ready for its afternoon departure to Saint Louis, the seven car train will go out on August 20, 1964 behind D&RGW 5654 and Texas & Pacific's 1951-vintage E8 33." Texas & Pacific's E8 33 was built in August 1951 as number 2013 (c/n 14558) on EMD Order 6104, renumbered around 1961 as 33 to fit into MP's scheme, retired in March 1970 and traded to EMD for SD40's.

CR GP9 7391
Title:  CR GP9 7391
Description:  Conrail GP9's 7391 and 7392, and E8 4327 heading southeast near Crown Point, Indiana on an unknown day in June 1982, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 7391 was built in March 1956 as NYC GP9 5991 (c/n 21004) on EMD Order 5447, was renumbered to NYC 7391, then PC 7391, then CR 7391, later traded to EMD.

I was driving south on I-65 and happened to see headlights approaching from the west. I jumped off the Interstate, but by then this train had already passed me. I had to take some liberties with the local speed zones to get this photo, and even then the best I could do was get ahead a short distance, pull over and stick the camera out the window. The hogger was working his engines. A visit to Google Earth today shows that these rails have since been removed. * NOTE * Mark E left a Comment asking if I was sure this was shot in 1984. I went back and looked at the slide mounts (there are three slides in this sequence), and they are all stamped June 1982 and sequentially numbered. According to crcyc.railfan.net the E8's were all retired in January 1978, so I'll admit there is some question about the validity of the date. I do have a couple of slides of a CR E8 in Chicago commuter service dated July 1978. I was on a business trip and these are slides from my employer's camera, so they are not as carefully marked as they should be. The slide date stamp is all I can go by at this point.

AT&SF H16-44 3007
Title:  AT&SF H16-44 3007
Description:  AT&SF H16-44 3007 at Saint Joseph, Missouri on August 28, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built by Fairbanks-Morse in June 1951 (c/n 16L508), delivered in the black Zebra Stripe paint scheme, it was retired and traded to EMD during 1968. The Santa Fe placed two orders for H16-44's, the first order was for ten units (#'s 2800-2809, later 3000-3009) and were what would be considered Phase 1. The identifying features of the Phase 1 design includes the Raymond Loewy-styled rounded windows on the cab sides, notches in the frame to clear the brake cylinders, a slightly thicker frame (as compared to the trailing unit) . The second AT&SF H16-44 order was for another ten units (#'s 2810-2819, later 3010-3019) was a Phase 2 design, built between June-July 1952, represented by trailing unit number 3019.

ICG GP26 2601
Title:  ICG GP26 2601
Description:  Illinois Central Gulf Railroad GP26 2601 sounthbound in Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in January 1982, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. It's a cold day in Chicago and there is much to see in this photo. For instance, I assume that the station wagon parked on the embankment (below the yellow Railbox boxcar) belongs to the bridge tender, but the door on the shed on top of the bridge is open, so either he is careless, or the bridge is unattended. I think that might be Ashland Avenue passing below the tracks. The bridge carries the rails over an unnamed canal off the South Branch of the Chicago River. Looking at maps of this era, the unnamed canal appears to end at the north side of the Chicago's Union Stockyards. Thanks to a comment by Phil Gibby, we now know this unnamed canal's nickname is Bubbly Creek. Gases bubbling out of the riverbed from the decomposition of blood and entrails dumped into the river by the local stockyards in the early 20th century gave the creek its name. There are plenty of signalheads at the entrance to the bridge, I count eight, so perhaps the building on top of the bridge was also a dispatch point in earlier days. This is a serious bottleneck to the system, and correct me if I'm wrong, but the Santa Fe also had to drag their Super Chiefs across this bridge. The time is 12:12 PM, or so, if you believe the clock hands below the water tower in the upper left of the frame. I shot the photo, and I did not see the clock hands for 25 years. Was the clock functioning when I shot this photo, I don't know.

B&O E6 1411
Title:  B&O E6 1411
Description:  B&O E6 1411 eastbound on Train Number 6, The Capitol, at 63rd Street, Chicago, Illinois on October 10, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Note the airplane in the upper right, also eastbound. This locomotive was built as E6A 60 in June 1941 (c/n 1328) on EMD Order E388A, and originally shared road number 60 with its E6B mate. It was wrecked in a rear end collision at Dickerson, Maryland on September 24, 1942, rebuilt in-kind by EMD. It was renumbered to 60A during 1950, renumbered back to 60 during mid-April 1952, rebuilt by the B&O during December 1953, renumbered to 1411 during early 1957, out of service by January 1, 1967, sold to EMD during 1967 as trade-in credit on a SD40 order. Within approximately six miles there were five mainline railroad stations on 63rd Street at the time of this photo. This was the middle of the five, situated at 63rd Street (the name of the station) and Oakley Avenue (2300 west), serving the B&O, C&O, and Pere Marquette. The station house was built at ground level before the tracks were elevated and a stairway led to the upper level platforms.

B&O GP35 3547
Title:  B&O GP35 3547
Description:  Baltimore & Ohio Railroad GP35 3547 passing below Akron Junction in Akron, Ohio on March 4, 1983, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The engineer's cab heater intake is covered over, a common adjustment on EMD locomotives in winter. This locomotive was built in July 1964 (c/n 29379) on EMD Order 7736. I believe this was called Akron Junction. Fred Stuckman adds the following (valid as of 1/1/11, no kiddding) :

The tracks below are the old Cleveland line, it originates in Cleveland and winds it's way through eastern Ohio and ends at the Ohio River across from Wheeling WV. That line was originally called the CT&V (Cleveland Terminal & Valley). The line today is abandoned from Urichsville Ohio to the river. CSX still owns a small portion in Cleveland, CVSR from Cleveland to Akron, Metro, our bus company, from Akron to Canton. Wheeling & Lake Erie operates the Akron-Canton line for the industries and CVSR runs passenger excursions on it June through August. South of Canton, it's abandoned to Dover. From there to Urichsville is operated by RJ Corman. Finally, the Pennsy, CA&C (Cleveland Akron & Columbus) came onto the main just 100' or so to the left of that image at AY interlocking, and ran concurrent with the B&O until Warwick Ohio. (Clinton) From there, it would continue to Columbus. Each company owned one main track between AY and Warwick. From Hudson south, most of it is torn up. The track through Hudson is the Cleveland & Pittsburgh line. That has been PRR/PC/CR/NS, still quite active today.

Title:  B&O E6 1411
Description:  B&O E6 1411 at 63rd Street, Chicago, Illinois, October 10, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built as number 60 in June 1941 (c/n 1328) on EMD Order E388A, renumbered to 1411. It is seen here eastbound heading Train #6, The Capitol, stopping at the 63rd Street Station, having departed Grand Central Station at 4:30 PM. It will arrive at the Washington DC Union Station at 9:30 AM if all goes well.

The June 1965 edition of the Official Guide lists the following equipment for The Capitol, the daily Trains 5 and 6 (note; the first car number listed is the westbound car number, the second number is the eastbound car number):

Built in June 1954 as 2432 (c/n 19595) on EMD Order 5351, it was renumbered to 206 and later to 806, retired in January 1981, held for dispostion until May 1984. Note the electrical cable attached to a receptacle just below the headlight. I presume that to be a connection to power the lights in the coaches, and after they run these units around the train, they will plug it into a receptacle on the coach.

CB&Q GP7 244
Title:  CB&Q GP7 244
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP7 244 switching at Naperville, Illinois on April 7, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in November 1952 (c/n 14708) on EMD Order 5148, it became BN 1600 and was retired in September 1983. It is seen as the power for the East End Way Freight (to the Dispatcher, this is Extra 244 East) switching the industries in Naperville.

The locomotive is equipped with a steam generator, and has a box on the running board ahead of the engineer's front window, which I believe is for Automatic Train Control equipment. A similiar box appears on the top of the boiler on steam locomotive 4960. Here is an expanation from Karl Rethwisch, retired CB&Q Engineer: Chuck, to my knowledge the 243 and 244 were the only Q Geeps fitted with Automatic Cab Signal equipment. They would, occasionally, show up on the Galesburg Local passenger job. I know of no reasons why these two engines were so equipped.

CB&Q E8 9945A
Title:  CB&Q E8 9945A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9945A westbound at Naperville, Illinois on January 25, 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built in May 1950 (c/n 9689) on EMD Order 2012A, became BN 9945, was sold to Amtrak August 1, 1972 becoming 339, finally retired May 28, 1975 and sold for scrap to Precision National. It is seen making a station stop to discharge passengers and conduct a bit of head end business. The power car behind the locomotive has a baggage section, and a CB&Q employee is handing out something to the man on the ground with the baggage cart. The gentleman on the left side platform has paused in his shoveling duties to watch me snap this photo.

This is most likely Train Number 103, a daily except Saturday and Sunday almost all-stop Dinky departing Union Station at 7:35 AM, arriving at Naperville at 8:35 AM. A note in CB&Q Employees Timetable #9 (in effect on this date) states: NO. 103 MUST NOT EXCEED 35 M.P.H. TO DISPATCH NEWSPAPERS AT EOLA. This train is not scheduled to make a stop at Eola (five miles west of Naperville), and I can tell you from first hand experience (I was a newspaper boy in Naperville) that dispatching newspapers at 35 mph was not good for the papers. You generally would throw away the first couple of papers on the outside of the bundle. This train is on the middle track because the eastbound East End Way Freight was occupying the far left (typically westbound) track on its journey from Eola to Naperville this Monday morning.

PRR E8 5802
Title:  PRR E8 5802
Description:  PRR E8 5802 at Englewood Union Station on the south side of Chicago, Illinois on April 11, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The rails crossing in the foreground belong to the Rock Island. This locomotive was built in July 1952 (c/n 15666) on EMD Order 6354, later it became PC 4281, then Amtrak 289. It is seen here westbound at Englewood Union Station.

This MIGHT be Train 3-71, due at Englewood at 4:00 PM and Chicago Union Station at 4:15 PM, according to the June 1965 issue of the Official Guide. Note that there is a coach in the middle of the consist, suggesting that this may be two trains combined. Train Number 3 originated in Norfolk at 1:05 PM on the N&W, which arrived in Cincinnati at 6:55 AM. It appears that Train Number 71 originated in Pittsburgh, arriving in Cincinnati, and was combined with #3 , leaving 8:25 AM. Train 3-71 arrived in Richmond, Indiana at 9:33 AM and departed at 10:35 AM. There must have been some sort of switching at Richmond, the notes in the Official Guide indicate the following, verbatim, including punctuation:

Number 71 Daily Sleeping car Roanoke to Cincinnati (10 Roomettes 6 Double Bedrooms) (in N&W No. 3). Dining Car (Lounge) on N&W Ry. open late afternoon and evening. Coaches Norfolk to Cinicnnati. Cincinnati to Chicago. Coach Lunch Served between Norwood and Logansport. Another note indicates that Train 3-71 has a Lounge (Bar) Pittsburgh to Richmond (6 Double Bedrooms). (En route from New York to Indianapolis in No. 3) Dining Car ....Pittsburgh to Richmond Coaches .... Pittsburgh to Richmond Richmond to Chicago.

Built in April 1964 (c/n 29280) on EMD Order 7111, it became BN 2530 and was rebuilt to GP39M 2882. It is seen here leading another GP35, a GP30, and an SD24 on Train 97, the daily Saint Paul Merchandise, scheduled to depart Cicero at 10:30 AM. I'm standing on the rear platform of combine #3003, a 40 foot mail/coach assigned to the Oregon Way Freight, one of the last mixed trains out of Eola. The Rear Brakeman is preparing to line us into the siding as #97 overtakes us. Note the Fireman out on the walkway behind the cab. Something's up, he would not leave that warm cab unless there was some business to attend to. Picking up orders, or maybe a chat with the way freight's head-end crew as he passes by?

CRI&P 101 'Lake Michigan'
Title:  CRI&P 101 'Lake Michigan'
Description:  Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad Business Car #101, 'Lake Michigan' at Colorado Springs, Colorado on August 20, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Business car 101 was built by Pullman as coach 352 during 1950. Around 1953 it appears to have been converted to business car 101, 'Lake Michigan' by the Rock Island. It is seen here on the Colorado Springs section of the Rocky Mountain Rocket. On the left is D&RGW VO-660 72 (built 8/41, c/n 64186) with a 'mixed train'. I arrived (with my parents) on the Colorado Springs connection of CB&Q's Denver Zephyr (DZ), forwarded from Denver to Colorado Springs on the rear of Rio Grande's Train #1, The Royal Gorge. Upon arrival at Colorado Springs, the DZ cars were cut off the Royal Gorge, and the local D&RGW switcher picked them up. The 72 will take the DZ cars and the freight cars it collected during its morning switching and drag them over to the other side of town, where the DZ cars will be serviced, cleaned, and be held for Train #2, The Royal Gorge, for return to Denver, where they will be added to the DZ for return to Chicago.

Just a couple of weeks before retirement on the CB&Q, 2-8-2 4960 is seen crossing the Wisconsin River in Merrimac heading the Circus World Museum's vintage circus train toward Milwaukee on the C&NW, a proud moment for this locomotive. The 4960 will return to CB&Q rails after this trip to head a couple more fantrips before returning to Baraboo, Wisconsin, retired from the CB&Q and donated to the museum. Note two railfans in the bushes just above the water line, snapping the exact same photo. I'd like to see their shots. I didn't get to the location fast enough, so I ended up with railfans and bushes in my photo. Somehow, Schlitz Brewing Company of Milwaukee was involved in the sponsorship of this train, and their business car is bring up the markers.

Built in February 1949 (c/n 5990) on EMD Order E963A, it retained the CGW road number for a few years after the July 1968 merger, renumbered to 213 in 1971, retired, traded to EMD and scrapped by Saint Louis Auto Shredding (Madison, Illinois) in June 1985. Some folks refer to this as a model F5, however, EMD considered it an F3, built with F3 components in the latest carbody refinement which carried over to the first production F7's. It was equipped with upgraded traction motors (D27B), thus setting it apart from earlier F3's.

Built in May 1956 as 205A (c/n 21611) on EMD Order 2075A, it was renumbered 35A and eventually became Amtrak 409 (First). It is seen here loading passengers as demolition of Union Station continues. The first part was the removal of the train sheds on the north side, exposing the Milwaukee trains to the elements for the first time since the station was completed in 1925. The next step is the removal of everything above street level to make room for glass and steel office buildings on the air rights.

The sanders appear to be on as "The Plug", GM&O's commuter train between Chicago and Joliet accelerates out of Fort Wayne Junction and heads southwesterly toward Joliet. Fort Wayne Junction was the name of the location just south of the South Branch of the Chicago River, where both the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Gulf Mobile and Ohio Railroad shared a bridge. Once over the bridge, the railroads parted ways. It was so named because the PRR's Fort Wayne sub was the route into Chicago. This same junction was known as the Alton Junction to the PRR and Milwaukee Road people, named for GM&O's predecessor into Chicago, the Alton Railroad. Alton Junction also marked the southern end of CUS Company (Chicago Union Station) rails.

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.

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.

It was sold to the West Suburban Mass Transit District on August 18, 1972, sent to Morrison Knudsen in Boise, Idaho for rebuilding into a E9Am (or E9Au, I'm not sure), returning to BN rails as 9923 after July 1973. Note that the second unit has three red stripes, unique to the CB&Q E7's with small numberboards, the last unit is an E7 with the large numberboards and four red stripes.
