Remarks & Notes 
The North Coast Limited lead by CB&Q E8A 9947A at Eola, IL on September 10, 1964. The time would have been a little after 2 pm. The train is headed east through Eola Yard. Eola is a unincorporated community. It was between Naperville and Aurora when I took the photo. Today it is surrounded by Aurora. In less than a minute the train will pass Eola Tower at the east end of the yard. West Eola Tower was at the west end of the yard. The yard tracks north of the three-track mainline (and a siding) are visible but the yard tracks to the south are just to the left of the photo. I was standing on a rickety highway bridge (Vaughn Rd.) that went over the whole yard, but is long gone. 9947A became BN 9947 and then AMTK 341.
