The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. May 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo recently, at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
When one thinks about those many pre Amtrak passenger trains that traveled to and from the city of Chicago Illinois during the 1950's and 60's, many times the silver streamlined passenger diesel locomotives and stainless steel passenger cars of the former Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad come to mind.
Fellow club member Rich, owns and operates this beautiful sound equipped H.O Scale model of an EMD E 7 passenger locomotive.
During the 1950's and 60's..these locomotives were a comon site on the head end of the California Zephyr, The Denver Zephyr, several secondary mail hauling passenger trains, and of course...the C,B & Q's own Chicago to Aurora commuter trains.
