CB&Q #225 "Juno"         
CB&Q #225 "Juno", westbound at Naperville, Illinois, March 1, 1966, photo by Chuck Zeiler. This car was ordered December 1935, and delivered a year later, by Budd on Job 964:2. The order was for two seven-car articulated trainsets for the 2nd Twin Cities Zephyr. By the time of this photo, the trainsets had been re-assigned to the Nebraska Zephyr and reduced to five-car trainsets. This photo was used in Bulletin 22 of the Burlington Route Historical Society, and here is how Editor F. Hol Wagner captioned it: "When even one car of the articulated trainset required shop work, the entire train had to be withdrawn from service. To ferry the trainset to the Aurora shops, it was usually tacked on the rear of a westbound suburban train and deadheaded from Chicago's 14th Street coachyard out to the shops, as exemplified in this March 1, 1966 view of the five car Train of the Goddesses trailing the two bi-levels of dinky #107 at Naperville."
