11 102366 TITLE: CB&Q 2-6-6-2 Class T-2 4100
DESCRIPTION: Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-6-6-2 Class T-2 4100 at Denver, Colorado on October 23, 1948, photographer unknown, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 4100 was built by Baldwin in February 1910 (cn 34230) and retired in August 1950. The CB&Q had 10 Class T-2 locomotives delivered in 1910, numbers 4100-4109, built as coal burners. The coal bunkers were hinged and could be tilted to force the coal forward as the supply was depleted. The design was known as a Ryan and Johnson coal pusher, and the tilting segment can be seen along the diagonal line at the forward part of the tender. In 1919 the U.S. Forest Service required locomotives operating in the Black Hills of South Dakota to be oil burners, and number 4101 was the first so modified. Eventually all but three of the T-2's were converted to burn oil by 1927, although 4100 was briefly converted back to coal when assigned to the Beardstown Division. The sand dome behind the stack was added by the CB&Q during the late 1920's to most of the T-2's.

17 102357 TITLE: Davenport, IA Union Station.
DESCRIPTION: Davenport, IA Union Station. Wikipedia - Rail service through Davenport was being discussed and planned to start in 1842.[2] Up to this point, however, the Mississippi River had never been crossed by a bridge anywhere. That was accomplished by 1856 when the first railroad bridge was built between Davenport and Rock Island, Illinois, and the city's rail history began. By 1895 several rail lines already passed through Davenport when Frank Blair organized the Davenport, Rock Island and North Western Railway (DRI & NW). In five years the company completed its route to Clinton, Iowa and the Crescent Bridge (1899) across the Mississippi between Davenport and Rock Island. The bridge is downstream from the site of the first railroad bridge that crossed the river.[3] In 1901, the DRI & NW was purchased by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (CBQ). The Milwaukee Road already operated in Davenport while the CBQ did not, this purchase brought it operations to the city. The three railroads each had a station in Davenport and in 1916 plans were made to build a union station on the riverfront.[4] They were revised in 1923 and the following year the DRI & NW and its parent companies built Union Station on the levee grounds. After World War II passenger service started to fade until it was discontinued in the 1950s. The building eventually became a Trailways bus station. The main floor of the station has as a visitor's center from the 1990s to 2017. The upper floors and the freight house are office space. A $450,000 renovation of the facility was completed in 2009.[5] It is the only passenger train station remaining in Davenport.[4]
