CB&Q E8 9947A
Title:  CB&Q E8 9947A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9947A and UP E9 951 at Union Station, Chicago, Illinois on October 17, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 9947A was built as CB&Q E8 9947A in August 1950 (c/n 11701) on EMD Order 2023A. It became BN 9947 on March 2, 1970 and on August 1, 1972 it became Amtrak 341. It is seen here in charge of Train #25, the North Coast Limited. departing Union Station at 12:20 PM. The times quoted here are Central Standard time, as published in timetables. It's about 1:20 locally. The train will be turned over to the Northern Pacific at 7:05 PM at Saint Paul, MN, 427 miles from this point. Union Pacific 951 was built in June 1955 (c/n 20488) on EMD Order 2070A, and went on to become on of the UP's Heritage Fleet of preserved diesels. It is seen here at the south throat of Union Station, somewhat out of place. The Union Pacific's trains in and out of Chicago were handled by the Milwaukee Road, the only tenant on the north side of Union Station. A possible explanation for this rare appearance of a UP train on the south side might be a derailment blocking the Milwaukee's main line, forcing the MILW to use CB&Q tracks around the problem.
