CB&Q E8 9943B
Title:  CB&Q E8 9943B
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9943B westbound on Train #17, The California Zephyr, Naperville, Illinois, June 24, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Business is a little better than usual, there are two flat top coaches cut in between the baggage car and the first dome coach. This locomotive was built in April 1950 (c/n 9686) on EMD Order 2012A, became BN 9936, and was sold for scrap to Precision National in June 1981. It is seen here 27 miles from Union Station in Chicago, half way between Lisle and Naperville, about a half hour into its overnight journey to Denver, where the CB&Q power will be replaced with D&RGW power. The CZ will continue through the Rocky Mountains arriving at Salt Lake City, Utah, where the D&RGW power will be replaced by WP power for the final leg of the journey to Oakland, California, 2525 miles from its starting point. Two days from this photo date, this same locomotive will return to Chicago leading Train #10, The Denver Zephyr.

CB&Q E8 9943B
Title:  CB&Q E8 9943B
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9943B & O1a 4960 at Aurora, Illinois on June 26, 1965, Koadchrome by Chuck Zeiler. It's a busy moment at the Aurora, Illinois Depot as a freight passes though and Train #10, The Denver Zephyr arrives for its 8:45 AM CST stop. This being summer, it's 9:45 DST locally, and Extra 4960 West waits for the trains to clear the circuit before proceeding on a fantrip to Oregon, Illinois and return. By almost anyone's standards this was an unusual fantrip, the feature of this trip was that it was a working way freight. In addition to the usual baggage car (for tape recording and hanging your head out), open gondola, air-conditioned coaches and snack car, the trip had freight cars to be set out at various industries along the way.

CB&Q #9943B
Title:  CB&Q #9943B
Description:  A CB&Q E8A (it's either #9943A or #9943B; I'm leaning towards #9943B) and a #993x-series E7A are the power for a mail train, with a WWII-era troop sleeper rebuilt to an express boxcar first out (might be NYC-owned), followed by 3 heavyweight baggage-express cars (first of these is C&O), 3 more ex-WWII troop sleepers rebuilt to express boxcars, the next car or two might be RPO's, and the last car appears to be a lightweight baggage-express (this would more than likely be a "rider" car). A number of these express boxcars and baggage-express cars would be in postal storage service, and would therefore be locked. Scanned with an Epson V550 from a duplicate 35mm slide, brand is unknown. Photographer and date are unknown.
