CB&Q E5 9915B
Title:  CB&Q E5 9915B
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9915B westbound at Naperville, Illinois on August 21, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built in June 1941 (c/n 1304) on EMD Order E-377, was named 'Silver Clipper', and was traded to GE as credit on an order of U25B's in March 1965. This would be considered a Phase II E5, the major differences being in the roof grills, side cab vent, steam generator vents, front pilot/anticlimber/coupler arrangement, and the rear bulkhead ribs.

CB&Q E5 9915B
Title:  CB&Q E5 9915B
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9915B eastbound at Aurora, Illinois on October 11, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. My best guess, this was a late running Train Number 48, The Blackhawk, due in at Aurora at 5:40AM, arriving from Saint Paul. It's definitely eastbound, and it's definitely in the morning. Because of the heavyweight car cut in behind the motors, I disallowed the Denver Zephyr, due in Aurora at about this time. The Denver Zephyr almost never had a heavyweight car in its consist while I photographed it between 1962 and 1966.
