"Chicago to Burlington" EMD E9 Locomotive
For nearly twenty years No. 9913 plied the commuter routes of Greater Chicago in its distinctive Silver Scotchlite and high-visibility striped nose. Retired on October 6, 1992, the unit was then sold to the Indiana Transportation Museum in Noblesville, Indiana, in September 1994. Two years later, it was bought by Tennessee 200 Ltd., as PPCX 9913. Repainted in the old Louisville & Nashville blue and cream, lettered "Spirit of Tennessee," and numbered 1996, it criss-crossed the state of Tennessee commemorating the 200th anniversary of the state's founding in 1796.
No. 9913 was next bought by the Santa Clarita Railroad, a movie prop company based in Saugus, CA, and was finally purchased by the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in 2002. It arrived at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in December 2002, and has been repainted as CB&Q No. 9913.
