Review of Q Connections CB&Q

The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad was referred to as the "Burlington Route"- or, to fans, as the "Q". This program covers the CB&Q and other lines with which it had a relationship- hence, ""Q" Connections". The Burlington had maintained two of her steam locomo tives operational long after dieselization. They were fine public relations tools and were made available for fan trips and historic gatherings in on-line cities. One of these, the number 5632, a "Northern-type" 4-8-4, travelled to Denver for the 1963 NRHS Convention, where it hauled an excursion to Colorado Springs on the "Joint Line" and return. Witness as it delights the conventioners along the Front Range on the Rio Grande, then back to Denver on the Santa Fe iron. Then we spend a few hours at the Burlington's hub- Galesburg, Illinois. A 2-10-2 switches in the yards, and at the depot, a string of gleaming "Zephyrs" remind us of the glory days
