CB&Q E9 9993 Editors Pick!        
Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E9 9993 westbound on Train #25, the North Coast Limited, at Eola Illinois on January 1, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 9993 was built during August 1954 (c/n 19632) on EMD Order 2065A for 6 E9's (9990-9995), and after March 2, 1970 it became BN 9993. 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.
