CB&Q GP7 226
Title:  CB&Q GP7 226
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP7 226 eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on April 20, 1963, photo by Chuck Zeiler. This is the East End Way Freight (Extra 226 East, to the Dispatcher) which switched the industries between Eola and Congress Park. It has finished the Naperville industries and is heading east, likely the next job will be Pepperidge Farm in Downers Grove where that air slide hopper will be set out.

CB&Q GP7 226
Title:  CB&Q GP7 226
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP7 226 on the East End Way Freight at Naperville, Illinois on April 1, 1964, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in September 1951 (c/n 14690) on EMD Order 5072, it bewcame BN 1582 and was retired in September 1983. This is the paint scheme the GP7's were delivered in, nicknamed "blackbirds" by the local crews. It would soon exchange this paint for the red scheme, nicknamed "redbird" appropriately enough. It was equipped with a steam generator, and at the time of this photo, the intake and exhaust were covered with steel caps painted to match the roof color.

CB&Q GP7 226
Title:  CB&Q GP7 226
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP7 226 on the East End Way Freight at Naperville, Illinois on December 8, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built September 1951 (c/n 14690), became BN 1582, and was retired September 1983. It may appear there is dirt in the upper left of this photo, but those are pigeons who took to the air upon hearing a hard coupling. They will make a circle and land back on their home, the top of the Boecker grain elevator in the background. Also pictured is waycar (CB&Q term for caboose) 14351, which for the four years I photographed trains in Naperville was the regularly assigned waycar to the East End Way Freight. It was chalked "E END" on the cupola end by the curved grab iron. It was built at the Aurora Shops in July 1906, became BN 11087, and was retired and donated in January 1971. A note on the donation in the book, Waycars Of The Chicago Burlington & Quincy RR reads: 'Car auctioned off by television station WTTW, Chicago, IL, and sold to a private individual in Prospect Heights, IL on May 1, 1977'. I have no further info at this time.
