AT&SF E6 15
Title:  AT&SF E6 15
Description:  AT&SF E6 15 at Albuquerque, New Mexico, circa 1942, photograph by Jack Delano, image from the Library of Congress ( LoC ). The description at the LoC was: Santa Fe R.R. streamliner, the 'Super Chief,' being serviced at the depot, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Servicing these diesel streamliners takes five minutes.

Number 15 was built in May 1941 ( c/n 1242 ), retired and traded to EMD in June 1968. Note it was equipped with a visor over the headlight, which I believe was installed to make the light less noticeable from the air, the fear being air raids from Japan during World War II. I count 11 men servicing the locomotives, although one man is carrying a grip bag, so maybe he is part of the locomotive crew. Also of interest ( to me ) is the man on the right stacking white bags on a baggage cart, and he is standing on something that is covered with a white fabric cloth.

ATSF 912
Title:  ATSF 912
Description:  The roundhouse and turntable combination was railroadings unique solution to servicing steam locomotives in a relatively small area. Even a large roundhouse, such as this example at Santa Fe Railways San Bernardino, California, yard was an efficient use of space. By the time of this photo in April 1961, steam was gone and was replaced with diesels. But the roundhouse and turntable was still in service. (Exact date unknown.)

CB&Q E5 9910A
Title:  CB&Q E5 9910A
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E5 9910A, named SILVER SPEED, departing Union Station in Chicago, Illinois on August 21, 1949, photographer unknown, print by Willian A. Raia, Chuck Zeiler collection. Hand written on the back of the print is J. Scribbins, who may be the original photographer. The trailing E5B unit MAY be 9910B, named SILVER POWER, but I could not definitively make out the name. The following is from the Burlington Route Historical Society's Burlington Bulletin No. 50, entitled, 'Overnight Every Night, Act 1: Burlington's 1936 Denver Zephyr", edited by Dave Lotz, who captioned this photo thusly:

Amplified with 174 additional chair car seats (provided by a pair of 52-seat cars and one-of-a-kind 70 seater SILVER LEAF, the latter built for the General Pershing Zephyr), No. 1 (the Denver Zephyr) gets out of Chicago behind E5s SILVER SPEED and SILVER POWER on August 21, 1949. Passengers aboard the amplified portion of the Colorado-bound Zephyr will drink and dine aboard 36-seat diner SILVER SPOON riding first-out behind the E5B. Meanwhile, Gulf Mobile & Ohio Alco S2 No. 11 gathers head-end cars for spotting at the mail terminal (they'll go south tonight on the Advance Midnight Special to Saint Louis) as a GM&O E7 (visible immediately above SILVER SPOON's rooftop kitchen vents) awaits its next call to duty in GM&O's tiny Harrison St. yard. Photographer Jim Scribbins recorded the action from the Polk St. overpass.

PRR 4230, I-1SA, #1 of 4, 1957
Title:  PRR 4230, I-1SA, #1 of 4, 1957
Description:  Kern. Here is the first of four successive duplicate 35mm color slides of photos by Fred Kern that were taken near Vail, Pennsylvania, on 4 May 1957. Shown here is Pennsylvania Railroad engine #4230, an I-1SA (2-10-0) "Decapod" built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as an I-1S during June of 1923, rebuilt in Juniata as an I-1SA in August of 1934, and retired in October of 1959 after 36 years of faithful service. Close observation suggests that there is a rear-end pusher locomotive adding to the drama!
