Title:  CB&Q SW1 9139
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad SW1 9139 at West Burlington, Iowa on September 26, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built by Electro-Motive Corporation, completed June 15, 1939 (c/n 900) on EMC Order E259, later became BN 84, was retired by the BN in November 1975, became Billings Grain 84, then PVGX 84. The blur in the foreground is whatever I was bracing the camera on for stabilization during a slow shutter exposure. West Burlington, Iowa on September 26, 1965, photo by Chuck Zeiler.
