Strutting its stuff at the depot during Galesburg Railroad Days, Metra 200 GM EMD F40PHM-2 diesel-electric locomotive "Norman W. Meulner" prepares to take a trainload of visitors for a scenic tour of the Galesburg rail yards. To the left is the Chicago Burlington & Quincy "Nebraska Zephyr" from the Illinois Railway Museum. In the background to the right is the ice house that once served the "Nebraska Zephyr" and an entire era of proud passenger trains.

During a tour of the Galesburg railroad yard, Harold A. Driscoll (right, in uncommonly clean work clothes) has his transportation punched by Harold Krewer (left, attired in a historic Chicago Burlington & Quincy "Nebraska Zephyr" conductor uniform). They are volunteers with the Illinois Railway Museum, taking an air-conditioned break from their weekend duty as hosts for the Zephyr.
