Burlington Bulletin No. 65
This multi-topic issue begins with a tribute to the late Al Holck, a Burlington author, historian, photographer, genealogist, and consummate gentlemen.  This issue’s first article provides the most comprehensive coverage of the tragic head-on collision at Montgomery, Illinois, September 27, 1964, with photos, diagrams, and documents from the CB&Q files.  The second article is another in the “I am a Burlington Man” series,  it is about M. L. Zadnichek who rose through the ranks of CB&Q management from 1936 until he left the Q in 1969.  This two-part article was written by his son Louis Zadnichek and Earl Currie, who recalls his experiences with Zadnichek who was a mentor.  The last article covers the events around turning the 5632 for the 100th Anniversary of the completion of the Q’s own Aurora to Chicago line where the 5632 was pained gold.  Cover price will be $25.00
