Illinois Railway Museum’s Burlington Route E5 9911A and the Nebraska Zephyr trainset head across 18th Avenue in Rockford, IL en route to Train Festival 2011 in Rock Island, IL.  Interestingly, the train is on former Burlington Route trackage; the freight-only branch between Flag Center (near Rochelle) and Rockford was shared with the Milwaukee Road (nowadays it’s Iowa Chicago & Eastern and Illinois Railroad).  July 19, 2011 photo by Tom McNair.
