Remarks & Notes 
The Nebraska Zephyr departs the Windy City out of Union Station on a rare excursion off the Illinois Railway Museum grounds bound for Quincy, IL and return. The Silver Pilot (the sloped nosed E-5) and the "Train of the Goddesses" (the articulated stainless steel passenger set) will follow the same route as she had decades earlier, and at speeds leaving most to call it a day after seeing it only but once.
