CB&Q Pioneer Zephyr 9900 on July 7, 1962. This is America’s first diesel-powered streamliner. Next to it is the German U505 submarine.
The Zephyr has been renovated has a display area in the parking garage. I went to Google Earth and Google Street View but can see neither the Greman U-Boat nor the Santa Fe Steam Engine.
