CB&Q F3 9962C
Title:  CB&Q F3 9962C
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad F3 9962C eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on July 15, 1963, photograph by Chuck Zeiler. This unit was built in October 1947 (c/n 4429) on EMD Order E791-A, retired and traded to EMD on an order of GP35's in August 1964. The Burlington ordered three sets of A-B-A F3's for the California Zephyr on EMD Order E791-A and E791-B (the B-Units) , equipped with steam generators but no dynamic brakes. When deliverd, they were painted in Aluminum paint with the black "whisker" passenger stripes. They were once the pride of the Burlington's passenger motive power, but by 1955, they were regeared for freight service and painted in the freight paint scheme, retaining their passenger series numbers. This is one of my earlier train photos, shot on Kodak Tri-X film. It was a grainy film, but fast, ASA 400.
