Two weeks before Day One of Amtrak, the Burlington’s Denver Zephyr is seen highballing through Eola, IL at the Eola Road crossing on the Q’s East End. A pair of E7s leads this train on the overnight dash to Denver, and one day closer to this train’s final performance.

Photographed on April 15, 1971.
