N EMD E5A Red Band CB&Q #9911A “Silver Pilot” (IRM Version)

The EMD E5 was built as a 2000 horsepower (despite the “E” in the name of the locomotive series originally referring to an “Eighteen hundred” horsepower engine specification) locomotive for passenger service specifically for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy. The major difference between the E5 and its other early E-unit brothers was its stainless steel finish and distinctive fluting, specifically chosen to match the CB&Q’s corrugated passenger trains such as the California, Nebraska, and Silver Streak Zephyr. “Silver Pilot” is the last surviving E5 unit, and the red nose dressing reflects its appearance from when it first arrived at the Illinois Railways Museum in Union, IL.
