CB&Q SW1 9140
Title:  CB&Q SW1 9140
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad SW1 9140 and 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4978 at Eola, Illinois on May 22, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 4978 was cosmetically restored and donated to Mendota, Illinois for static display. Before it was presented to Mendota, it arrived in Eola for final preparation. It was shoved onto the turntable by GP7 226 (in the background) and pulled into the roundhouse by SW1 9140. There wasn't enough room on the turntable for two locomotives, so 9140 spent the evening in the roundhouse coupled to 4978. In the morning, the procedure was reversed, with 4978 given its last ride on a turntable. It will need to be turned around for its final display position facing west.
