Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad PMC (Passenger Motor Car) on November 3, 1956, location unknown, Kodachrome by Dick Rumbolz, Chuck Zeiler collection. The location was not marked on the slide mount, but I have a few slides Dick shot of 9845 between Lincoln, Nebraska and Maryville, Missouri.

Although the location was not marked on the slide mount, it is likely near Saint Joseph, Missouri based on several other slides Dick Rumbolz shot of 9845 at the same time.

CB&Q PMC 9845 & E8 9937B
Title:  CB&Q PMC 9845 & E8 9937B
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad PMC (Passenger Motor Car) 9845 & E8 9937B at Saint Joseph, Missouri on June 22, 1957 by Dick , Kodachrome by Rumbolz, Chuck Zeiler collection. An unfortunate shadow, or perhaps an unfortunate spotting of the gas-electric, at least from a photographic point of view. This photo shows the E unit painted in the as-delivered black "whisker" stripes on the nose. This was the first E8 delivered to the CB&Q (c/n 9674), built in December 1949, retired and sold for scrap May 28, 1975. All the CB&Q E8's and E9's were delivered with black "whiskers", and it was not until 1959 that the red "whiskers" were first applied. This E8 also shows the coupler covers (in the open position) applied to the E's and subsequently removed.

CB&Q PMC 9845
Title:  CB&Q PMC 9845
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad Class PMC (Passenger Motor Car) 9845 at Maryville, Missouri on September 24, 1957, photo by Dick Rumbolz, Chuck Zeiler collection. My only choice on this site was Pullman-Standard as the builder and ACMU as the model. Neither is entirely correct. The body was built July 1928 by Pullman Car (In 1934 Pullman Car & Manufacturing merged with Standard Steel Car Co. to form the Pullman-Standard Car Manufacturing Company). It was delivered as number 845 and renumbered in 1930, when the 275 horsepower gasoline engine was replaced with a diesel from Electro-Motive Corporation. It was classed as a PMC on the CB&Q, (Passenger Motor Car) and finally scrapped in August 1961. Hand written on the slide mount was a notation that this is Train #30, which may or may not be correct. I recall train #30 being a Denver to Billings train, but I'm working from both memory (not always accurate) and a 1965 timetable. According to the 1965 timetable, Train #85 ran on Tuesday and Friday (9/24/1957 was a Tuesday) between St. Joseph, Missouri and Creston, Iowa, arriving in Maryville at 12:05 PM. The following is a comment from Brian Woodruff (thanks, Brian), which helps clarify the train number: "I have a 1954 Official Guide which does show the Creston to St. Joseph motor train as No. 30. While the Guide also lists a Billings to Denver train No. 30, that was technically a Colorado & Southern train. Also, in 1954, train No. 30 was due in Maryville at 8:55 am, and I'm thinking the length of the shadows in your pic look more like 9 AM than noon."

CB&Q PMC 9845
Title:  CB&Q PMC 9845
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad PMC 9845 at Lenox, Iowa, north of Saint Joseph, Missouri, on an unknown day in October 1957, Kodachrome by Dick Rumbolz, Chuck Zeiler collection. Gas-electrics were classed as PMC (Passenger Motor Car) by the Burlington, although drawings of this number series also show Class ED-3B. This particular PMC was built in July 1928 as 845, body by Pullman, power plant by Electro-Motive Corporation (c/n 279) driving Westinghouse electrical gear. The number 9 was prefixed to all the PMC numbers in the 1930's, and thus this one became 9845. Originally powered by a EMC Model 120 - 275 horsepower gasoline engine coupled to a DC generator, the power plant was later replaced with a 400 hp diesel. This PMC was scrapped in August 1961.
