CB&Q ran excursions with 5632 in the Omaha area in the early 60's. Circle tour Lincoln to Omaha through Ashland, Chalco and Ralston and back to Lincoln through Bellevue, Oreopolis,, Louisville and Ashland.
A really nice man, Fred Kujawa, gave me his train negs to take care of. Here are 2 of my favorites.
1. Chalco while we all waited. Notice how people are dressed, where people are(standing on the signal), and check out all of the late 50's and early 60's Chevy's, mostly.
2. Here comes the 5632. This was a working agency at the time. We had tickets and the train stopped for us to board. What a day!

I just noticed something. It looks like the agent is hooping the orders to the fireman. Wow! Don't see that everyday.

Tom: Did you see yourself in the left photo with Papa Bill and John's Dad? In front of the 60 Chevy.
I don't think I've ever seen these pictures before. I know that one I took is out of focus and then the camera jammed. So there were none to remember. These bring back some great memories.Thanks for sharing. Let's make an 8 x 10 or a 10 x 20. Fred had a good camera back then.
