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.

It’s August 19, 1970 and this yet to be re-numbered Q E7A and two sisters are in charge of BN train #1, the w/b DZ at Mendota, IL. The rear unit is the 9920 which IIRC was the only E7A painted this way. 9931-B will become the 9912.
