CB&Q E5 9909         
Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9909 near Saint Louis, Missouri sometime in 1942, photograph by W. K. Barhan, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. This was the General Pershing Zephyr, Train Number 32, daily between Saint Louis and Lincoln via Kansas City, operated jointly by the Chicago & Alton and the CB&Q , thus the ALTON BURLINGTON herald below the headlight. This train operated from April 30, 1939 to 1949, suspended briefly during World War II to conserve fuel and wear on the equipment. The train was originally powered by AA 9908, however that locomotive proved under-powered for the task.
