CB&Q 165ABC in 1964
Title:  CB&Q 165ABC in 1964
Description:  Early F units usually came in set of 4, i.e., ABBA. The CB&Q found that for most trains on its mostly flat railroad ABA sets were sufficient so the ABBAs were broken into ABs with another newer A added. On the CB&Q an ABBA set was lettered ABCD and an ABA set was lettered ABC. In this picture we see CB&Q 165A, an F7A and 165B and C, F3Bs. The train is the early morning "Pick Up" at Milledgeville, IL (122 miles from Chicago on the Twin Cities Line). If the train had a number, it was never used on the dispatcher's line. Yes it is a heck of a train to be doing local switching, but it did weekdays.

CB&Q 165ABC in 1965
Title:  CB&Q 165ABC in 1965
Description:  Early F units usually came in set of 4, i.e., ABBA. The CB&Q found that for most trains on its mostly flat railroad ABA sets were sufficient so the ABBAs were broken into ABs with another newer A added. On the CB&Q an ABBA set was lettered ABCD and an ABA set was lettered ABC. In this picture we see CB&Q 165A, an F7A and 165B and C, F3B and A. Is this the A end or the C end?

CB&Q F7 165A
Title:  CB&Q F7 165A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad F7 165A at Naperville, Illinois on August 12, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This road freight is substituting for the East End Way Freight, setting out a boxcar at Kroehler Manufacturing Company. This locomotive was built in May 1950 (c/n 9694) on EMD Order 3021A for four F7A units. These four F7's were mated with a F3A-B pair, producing a single three unit drawbar-connected locomotive 165. During the mid-1960's the drawbars were replaced with couplers and the suffix letter was added to the numberboards and painted on the nose.

CB&Q F7 165A
Title:  CB&Q F7 165A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad F7 165A eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on August 12, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Seen here with the sanders on, #165A is leaving Naperville after performing switching duties normally done by the East End Way Freight, which apparently had been annulled this day for reasons I do not know. I witnessed this three locomotive set switch Kroehler Mfg. Co. (the building in the background), normally switched by a NW2 or a GP7, and they were quick to leave town. CB&Q F7 165A was built in May 1950 (c/n 9694) and traded in on an order for SD45's in February 1969.

CB&Q F7 165A
Title:  CB&Q F7 165A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad F7 165A, eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on August 12, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in May 1950 (c/n 9694) on EMD Order 3021A, it was traded to EMD for SD45's in February 1969. It is seen here off the main line after setting out cars at Kroehler Mfg. Co., the plant in the background. Normally this would be handled by a single locomotive assigned to the daily East End Way Freight, but for some reason the way freight did not run on this date, and road power did the switching.

CB&Q F7 165A
Title:  CB&Q F7 165A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad F7 165A at Naperville, Illinois on August 12, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 165A is seen switching Kroeher Manufacturing Company in Naperville on this photo date. Usually this chore was handled by the East End Way Freight. I'm not sure why a road feight got the job on this date. I would speculate that either there was not enough work for the way freight to call a crew, or there were not enough crew men available to operate the way freight (this was in the era of five crew men per train). Whatever the case, this was highly unusual.
