CB&Q E8 9971
Title:  CB&Q E8 9971
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9971 eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on December 13, 1964, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built in August 1953 (c/n 18313). Usually, the CB&Q would have attached a power car to this train. The power car was a modified commuter coach with a generator, but in this case certain locomotives were modified to allow some of the power from the locomotive's auxiliary generator to be routed to the coach's lights. The air conditioning was provided by onboard Waukesha engine powered by four propane cylinders on each bilevel coach. The heat was steam. There wasn't a lot of electrical demand in those days.

Title:  CB&Q E8 9971
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9971 eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on March 18, 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This is Train #108 departing Naperville at approximately 6:53AM, a daily except Saturday and Sunday dinky (commuter train) to Chicago, making most of the local stops between Naperville and Chicago, arriving at Union Station at 7:46AM if it maintains the schedule. According to the CB&Q Employees Timetable #9 for the Chicago and Aurora Divisions (Effective at 12:01AM CST, Sunday, October 25, 1964), this train did not depart from the Aurora Depot, so it departed directly from the coach yard, arriving at its first stop, West Eola at 6:40AM, and stopping at Eola at 6:43AM.
