CB&Q E5 9915A
Title:  CB&Q E5 9915A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9915A at West Burlington, Iowa on September 29, 1963, Kodak Tri-X negative by Chuck Zeiler. This was the occasion of the 23rd birthday of steam locomotive 5632, and the CB&Q sponsored a fantrip to the West Burlington, Iowa shops, where 5632 had been constructed. There were a variety of locomotives on the floor in various stages of repair, and according to the Burlington Route Historical Society's Bulletin #10, 9915A (once named Silver Carrier) was wrecked at Bigelow MO on 4/22/63, and traded in on a U25B around 3/65. I don't know if it was returned to service in between.
