CB&Q GP7 225 Editors Pick!        
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.
