Hello All -
Can someone come up with details for the "400 Zephyr" fan trip that ran in January or maybe February of 1962?
The train was a matched set of yellow-and-green streamlined cars from the C&NW.  It originated in Chicago from the
C&NW depot (CPT) and ran to West Chicago where it was turned over to the Burlington Route to run down the branch 
through Batavia.  At Aurora the 4960 was tied on for the run west to IIRC Denrock. The train got back on the C&NW at
Agnew for the return to Chicago.  The trip was organized by Jim Neubauer for the Railroad Club of Chicago.

Does anyone have the flier for this trip (or-gasp-a TN)?  There should have been a notice in the "Running Extra" section
of TRAINS magazine for December '61 or January '62.  Any help would be appreciated.  I can't find any paperwork or
notes in my stuff and, apparently, I also have CRS.    Thanks.   Phil Weibler
