Chicago: 12 June'66

Once a year in the late Spring, the CB&Q ran a “Journey to Yesterday” behind steam to Colorado, part of a weeklong trip to sample steam in the narrow gauge empire and around Denver. 4960 departs Union Station, as viewed from Roosevelt Road. The Illini Railroad Club sponsored these trips, as they did most (or all) of the other excursions on the “Q”, and 1966 was the last year it was done as the CB&Q took a new direction in management.
