CB&Q TR2B 9408B
Title:  CB&Q TR2B 9408B
Description:  CB&Q TR2B 9408B at Knoxville, Illinois on April 2, 1950, photo purchased ages ago from J. R. Gruber, scanned by Chuck Zeiler. This photo shows the original configuration of 9408, a single locomotive built in 1949 as a TR2 cow and calf. This would appear to be the only instance of a single CB&Q locomotive showing both slogans on the same side. The lead unit displays class lights as required by CB&Q rules for road locomotives. The TR2's were broken up in 1954, and the cabless units (CB&Q 9400B-9413B) were returned to EMD for installation of cabs. By that date, the style of the cab had changed to a SW7 style, with rectangular windows over the hood area, as opposed to the arched windows that were on the TR2A's. All the former CB&Q TR2's were re-classed as NW2's.
