CB&Q Diesels and "The Silver Lady"


CB&Q's passenger fleet was almost exclusively the domain of six-axle EMD models in both A and B carbodies: E2s, E5s, E7s, E8s and E9s. The notable exceptions were six F3As (9960A & C to 9962A & C). Although the four-axle locos were routinely assigned to California Zephyr service, a color image of the locos in the passenger scheme is difficult to find. The photo of 9960A is presented through the courtesy of "California Zephyr Org." The linked photo is by Marty Bernard, after the loco was repainted and assigned to freight duty.
