Great stuff.  Notice in number 5 the ex N&W C628 on the left not yet painted in CNW colors.

Good catch on the CB&Q 168A.  This was the only Q F unit that made the BN merger, and would be retired in aither July or August of 1970.  Thanks for posting!

Yep, I diid notice the N&W C628 still in blue.   I got to see them in Blue, Dark Green, and Green&Yellow paint schemes, and got in trouble for always looking out the window of my school when I was supposed to be watching my studies and teacher.  Those were interesting times on the C&NW when they merged with the CGW and the M&StL.  Lots of bright colors.  My school looked across a large field to the tracks where the C&NW went over the Milwaukee Roads C&M main on a big diagonal truss bridge. Before those Alcos I watched the end of Milwaukee steam there too, and then the steam funeral trains.  What memories.  That was at Northbrook/Techny, Illinois.  The Milwaukee, the C&NW, and the ALCOs are long gone but the bridge is still there surounded by suburbia and factories.
