Chicago, Burlington & Quincy [Burlington Northern]
Chicago, Illinois (Twenty-sixth Street Crossing)
July 27, 1971




Between the stainless steel cab units and the stainless steel cabooses, the Burlington gave off an aura of class unlike any other road. Even with a thick layer of grime, CB&Q caboose no. 13514, seen here at 26th Street Crossing, still has it. Come to think of it, the Milwaukee Road's distinctive horizontal-ribbed cabooses (like the one in the right background) weren't bad eitherů
