The only photo I ever saw was taken by Stein in the FRC in 1964. Can't think of what book it was in. Maybe Silver Lady? Too lazy to look through :(

What is the location and date of your photo of the CZ with the Flexi-vans? Not Chicago, but maybe Denver? I think CB&Q used the ALCo switchers in Denver? Great photo! Thanks for sharing.

Looks like summer with the two flat top coaches ahead of the domes.

May D& F tower in the background?  That would make it Denver.

Posted last week in N&H section.
Guess nobody looks at all of TO.
I look at every discussion.

RRBaron, I have been looking through books and cant find a clear picture. I remember seeing these cars stored in the Yuba City yard. They were basically the same as the Walthers cars. The 1 used for CZ service ( WP 1699 ) were identical other than being painted silver with a steel pipe running the length of the car for the steam line. Contact Zephyrus, I believe in the past the was an article in the museum Headlight or Trainsheet.
