CB&Q E5 9910A
Title:  CB&Q E5 9910A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9910A, named SILVER SPEED, departing Union Station in Chicago, Illinois on August 21, 1949, photographer unknown, print by Willian A. Raia, Chuck Zeiler collection. Hand written on the back of the print is J. Scribbins, who may be the original photographer. The trailing E5B unit MAY be 9910B, named SILVER POWER, but I could not definitively make out the name. The following is from the Burlington Route Historical Society's Burlington Bulletin No. 50, entitled, 'Overnight Every Night, Act 1: Burlington's 1936 Denver Zephyr", edited by Dave Lotz, who captioned this photo thusly:

Amplified with 174 additional chair car seats (provided by a pair of 52-seat cars and one-of-a-kind 70 seater SILVER LEAF, the latter built for the General Pershing Zephyr), No. 1 (the Denver Zephyr) gets out of Chicago behind E5s SILVER SPEED and SILVER POWER on August 21, 1949. Passengers aboard the amplified portion of the Colorado-bound Zephyr will drink and dine aboard 36-seat diner SILVER SPOON riding first-out behind the E5B. Meanwhile, Gulf Mobile & Ohio Alco S2 No. 11 gathers head-end cars for spotting at the mail terminal (they'll go south tonight on the Advance Midnight Special to Saint Louis) as a GM&O E7 (visible immediately above SILVER SPOON's rooftop kitchen vents) awaits its next call to duty in GM&O's tiny Harrison St. yard. Photographer Jim Scribbins recorded the action from the Polk St. overpass.
