CB&Q E5 9912A
Title:  CB&Q E5 9912A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9912A at Kansas City, Missouri on an unknown date, photograph by R. S. Plummer, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Although the date is unknown it is likely somewhere between the late 1940's, when the truck skirts were removed, and the early 1950's when the names were dropped. In this case, the name 'Silver Meteor' is still visible on the name plate below the first carbody window. Number 9912A was built in March 1940 (c/n 969) and traded to GE in March 1965. This is a Phase 1 E5, the evidence is the buffer plate (the Phase 2 E5 carried the anti-climber across), and a cab vent below the Engineer's side window (missing on the Phase 2).

CB&Q E5 9912A
Title:  CB&Q E5 9912A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9912A, named SILVER METEOR, at Kansas City, Missouri, date unknown, photograph by R. S. Plummer, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Although the date is unknown, I roughed it in as early 1950. The truck skirts were removed in the late 1940's, and the coupler covers (present in this photo) were removed by the early 1960's. Also, the imitation grill plates (striped lines on either side of the upper headlight) are still present. They were removed in the early 1950's and replaced with stainless steel doors because to access the MU plugs and electro-pneumatic brake connections, the plates had to be unscrewed and removed. Terminal crews took to leaving the plates off completely.
