C&S 99518
Title:  C&S 99518
Description:  Colorado & Southern Railway auxiliary tender 99518 and CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960 at Flagg Center, Illinois on June 26, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This was a fantrip from Eola to Oregon and return, featuring 2-8-2 4960 working the Oregon Way Freight. About ten miles east of Oregon was a wye at Flagg Center ( Rochelle is seen in the right background ), where the locomotive was turned for the return trip to Chicago. For the ten miles or so between Flagg Center and Oregon, the trailing combine number 3003, which also served as the regular coach/caboose on the Oregon Way Freight, was coupled next to 4960's smokebox. This resulted in a very crowded vestibule on 3003, with fans literally hanging on. Although the CB&Q had provided a couple of safety officials to control the fans, but they could not get on to the vestibule to shoo us off.

CB&Q E8 9943B
Title:  CB&Q E8 9943B
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad E8 9943B & O1a 4960 at Aurora, Illinois on June 26, 1965, Koadchrome by Chuck Zeiler. It's a busy moment at the Aurora, Illinois Depot as a freight passes though and Train #10, The Denver Zephyr arrives for its 8:45 AM CST stop. This being summer, it's 9:45 DST locally, and Extra 4960 West waits for the trains to clear the circuit before proceeding on a fantrip to Oregon, Illinois and return. By almost anyone's standards this was an unusual fantrip, the feature of this trip was that it was a working way freight. In addition to the usual baggage car (for tape recording and hanging your head out), open gondola, air-conditioned coaches and snack car, the trip had freight cars to be set out at various industries along the way.

Although the CB&Q had provided a couple of safety officials to control the fans, but they could not get on to the vestibule to shoo us off. I believe that is the way freight's regular Conductor seen on 99518 leading 4960 in the run around move, and he was none too pleased with the situation and the general pilfering his office ( 3003 ) received from the fans.

CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960 westbound at Leland, Illinois on December 19, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Obviously not a heavily patronized trip, and this late in the year, there were no open cars, except for the baggage section of the power car. At the end of the train is a private car, the "Captain Hook". This train was billed as the annual Santa Claus trip, leaving Chicago at 9:00Am CST, stopping at LaGrange, Downers Grove, and Aurora, arriving at Zearing at 1:00PM. The feature of this trip was a photo contest judged by a representative of Trains Magazine. The fare was $7.50 for adults. At this time, 4960 was the last operating steam locomotive on the CB&Q, 5632 was in the shops for repairs. Seven months from this date, steam excursions on the CB&Q would be history.

CBQ O-1a 4960
Title:  CBQ O-1a 4960
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad class O-1-A 4960 at Baraboo, Wisconsin on June 29, 1966, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Not a great photo, however, it depicts a situation no one could have predicted. A new management was in place on the CB&Q, and there was no profitability in steam excursions, so 5632 was sold to Dick Jensen, and 4960 was donated to the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Its first assignment was to pull a circus train from Baraboo to Milwaukee, and is seen here laying over at the C&NW yard at Baraboo. I drove up from Chicago to Baraboo with Jerry Appleman and Chris Burritt to photograph what we thought was the last run of 4960. We were not alone, there were other railfans present. We shot a lot of photos under existing light, and then someone had the idea to point our automobile headlights at 4960. Here's one of the results of that collective effort. After Wisconsin, 4960 worked in Virginia and Arizona.

Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960 eastbound with Schlitz Circus train at Cottage Grove, Wisconsin, June 30, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Soon to be retired from the CB&Q, 4960 was to be donated to the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Before the last trip on the Q, 4960 headed to Baraboo to pull the circus train from Baraboo to Milwaukee on the C&NW, seen here doing just that at Cottage Grove.

CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960 at Merrimac, Wisconsin on the morning of June 30, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Just a couple of weeks before retirement on the CB&Q, 2-8-2 4960 is seen crossing the Wisconsin River in Merrimac heading the Circus World Museum's vintage circus train toward Milwaukee on the C&NW, a proud moment for this locomotive. The 4960 will return to CB&Q rails after this trip to head a couple more fantrips before returning to Baraboo, Wisconsin, retired from the CB&Q and donated to the museum. Note two railfans in the bushes just above the water line, snapping the exact same photo. I'd like to see their shots. I didn't get to the location fast enough, so I ended up with railfans and bushes in my photo. Somehow, Schlitz Brewing Company of Milwaukee was involved in the sponsorship of this train, and their business car is bring up the markers.

Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960 at Denrock, Illinois on July 17, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Sorry, I forgot my butt filter. This was the last CB&Q steam fan trip, from Chicago to Denrock and return. The train was wyed in Denrock and returned to Chicago, and the steam powered fan trip era ended. I counted all my CB&Q 4960 fan trip slides and I shot 267 slides, plus a few dozen more photos in black and white. You won't see all 267 images. Many of the images were sequence shots of photo runbys. Some images only show a plume of smoke and tracks.
