CB&Q 2-8-2 O-1-A 4960         
Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4960 eastbound at Naperville, Illinois on August 7, 1961, photograph by Chuck Zeiler. This photo shows two personal experiences by myself. The first is the angle of this photo, achievable only from the bedroom of the house next to the tracks on Loomis Street in Naperville, and I happened to live there. Unfortunately, my bedroom was on the side away from the tracks, so I had to run into my parents room to get this shot. The second experience was that I participated in the railfan safety violation as seen here. The idea was to wait in the power car until the Conductor got busy elsewhere. Then we ran through the generator room and would hang out on the forward vestibule riding right up against the tender, until we got caught, and this was before the canteen tender was added. Good experiences, good smells too.
