Remarks & Notes 
Classic Q. In a scene that just screams CB&Q, E5 #9911A powers the Nebraska Zephyr excursion under the classic signal bridge that has guarded this spot for decades. With a new tri-light cantelever signal installed and ready for service just out of the frame, this signal bridge's days are numbered, and the same goes for the next signal bridge visible in the distance. In a few short moments, the Zephyr will load passengers at Galesburg before eating up the miles at 80 mph on its way to Quincy.
